Claire completed a BA (Hons) in Criminology from the University of Hull (2014-2017). She then went on to complete an LLM in International Law from the University of Hull (2017-2018).


Claire began her PhD in Sociology in October 2018, studying full-time after recently finishing her Master's degree in September. Her research will consist of a study of terrorist offenders in the prison system, deradicalisation programmes, and practitioners' perceptions of how efficient these are. Following developments of segregated terrorist-only prison wings being formed in certain UK prisons in 2017, the research is very current and explores a range of themes imperative to an everyday life that is not often considered.

Thesis title

"Concentration Incarceration": could this be beneficial or detrimental to the handling of terrorist offenders?
