Which call are you planning to apply for?
Transnational Organised Crime 2018

What are your research interests?
With colleagues, I have recently completed a study examining ‘Organised Crime Groups Involved in Fraud’ now published by Palgrave Pivot. I am currently working on a study examining ‘The Facilitation of Organised Crime by Professional Enablers and Money Launderers’. This study is due for completion in October 2018.
I am particularly interested in organised criminals, (their routes in and experiences of) enablers (professional or otherwise) and money laundering (the movement of money with the purpose of cleaning it).

What is your offer?
I am an experienced qualitative researcher, who conducts in-depth qualitative interviews with both offenders and policing/enforcement professionals. I am experienced at research design, designing research instruments, (for both offenders and enforcement), data analysis and report/book writing. I am also experienced at submitting ethics applications to university ethics committees and government departments.

I would like to be part of an national/European, international research team. I can offer a wealth of knowledge regarding UK policing and legislation; organised crime, fraud, and money laundering. I have very good police contacts within this particular field.

Who would you like to collaborate with?
Researchers, academics, non-academic stakeholders, public and private sector professionals.
