Zoë is an Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies at Plymouth University. She is also Associate Head of School for Teaching and Learning in Criminology at Plymouth Law School. Her key research interests lie in policing issues, particularly relating to public order policing, plurality in policing and managing diversity. Her research has particularly focused on Gypsies and Travellers, including projects funded by the British Academy, local authorities, the Home Office and Department for Communities and Local Government. More recently Zoë’s research has developed understandings of diversity in policing within a rural context and as part of a consideration of ‘hate’ crime. Additionally Zoë has carried out research projects on the management of anti-social behaviour, focusing particularly on the work of Family Intervention Projects. Her work has been published broadly in book chapters and journals and has been utilised to inform policy and practice in relation to Gypsies and Travellers.
