Biography

Donna is a Senior Lecturer in Criminal Justice at Liverpool John Moores University. She has previously been a Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow and Associate Lecturer at Liverpool Hope University. She as also previously taught at LJMU as a Visiting Lecturer in Social Science.

Donna completed her PhD in Psychology at Liverpool Hope University. Her research explored the influence of inter-generational trauma and post-memory in shaping the cultural identities and social relationships of young people in Northern Ireland, and how this influences their life choices in relation to involvement in political violence.

A member of the International Society for Political Psychology (ISPP), and Society for Terrorism Research (STR), her research is interdisciplinary and primarily explores children and young people's perceptions and experiences of political violence, particularly in relation to the legacy of conflict in Northern Ireland. Within this area her research follows a number of themes; inter-generational trauma, collective/post-memory, victimization, transitional and restorative justice, and how this interacts with practices of political violence.

Prior to teaching she worked as a Researcher for the Behavioural Epidemiology Unit at the Centre for Public Health, (LJMU) working on a number of projects in the area of youth crime and violence before going on to become a Research Officer for the Social Science department. She has also been an ESRC Research Assistant (KTP) at The University of Central Lancashire working with the Lancashire Youth Justice Team and Probation Services.
