Becky is a subject matter expert in issues relating to victims’ experience of crime and the response from statutory and specialist services.
She is currently undertaking a PhD with the University of Bristol. Her research looks at the impact of victim participation, when legally represented by counsel within the court, on justice outcomes at the International Criminal Court. This research seeks to develop a new context for victims within criminal justice in an attempt to move away from inclusion on purely moral grounds.
Becky brings her experience of working within the public and third sector, including the Strategic Centre for Serious and Organised Crime at the Home Office, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse and with Victim Support. She has been a member of the Independent Monitoring Board of HMP Bristol since 2018 and the Centre for Gender Violence Research at the University of Bristol since 2020.
