Research Interests:  Corrections, theoretical criminology, mass incarceration, cybercrime, hacktivism, risk & edgework

My primary research interests include cybercrime and the use of hacking as a form of social activism, as well as media discourses of cybercrime. Other projects that I am currently working on examine the ideologies and attitudes of correctional officers working in Canadian provincial prisons, and how these impact on prison culture, including relations between officers and prisoners. I am also working on a project exploring youth and cyber-risk, specifically “sexting” as a form of edge-work.
