Assistant Professor of Criminology, Faculty of Social Sciences
Andrew joined the University of Nottingham in June 2018 having previously been a Graduate Teaching Assistant and then Lecturer in Criminology at Keele University where he also completed my PhD. His doctoral thesis was a critical history of the legal rehabilitation of people with criminal records in England and Wales. It specifically examined the introduction of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 as the only piece of legislation designed to protect people with convictions from social stigma and discrimination. In addition to his academic work, Andrew served as a trustee and later Chair on the board of the charity Unlock which provides information, advice and advocacy for people with convictions who are seeking to move forwards positively with their lives. In addition to acting as Programme Convenor for Undergradaute Criminology within the School, Andrew is the Co-Director of the Criminal Justice Research Centre.
Andrew's research interests are primarily in the areas of punishment and social control. In particular, he is interested in the impact of criminal records and post-sentence control measures on the citizenship and life chances of people with convictions (the so-called 'collateral consequences' of punishment). He is also interested in the political discourse which surrounds the contemporary governance of crime and punishment.
