More about Rosie
I graduated with a 2.1 in BA Criminology from NTU and also achieved an MSc in Psychology (Commendation).
During my previous studies I volunteered one day a week at HMP Whatton, which allowed me to secure a psychology assistant role at the prison on completion of my MSc. This has been extremely useful during my PhD (Vice-Chancellor's Bursary funded) as data collection has involved one-to-one interviews with offenders within the same prison.
My PhD explores the experience of those involved in Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) – an initiative that uses volunteers from the local community to support a sex offender as they reintegrate back in to the community.
During my PhD I have had the opportunity to present my work at national and international conferences – leading to network connections or future employment and projects. I have gained work experience as an hourly paid lecturer where I interact with undergraduates who have a passion for Forensic Psychology, while gaining relevant experience for my career plans in academia.
