He is a Fulbright scholar, has been appointed an expert with European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. He has also worked as part of a team of inspectors for the Inspector of Prisons, and being invited by the then Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald, to chair the Consultative Council to advise on issues relating to penal policy. He has also chaired the consultative forum on the Victims' Charter, as part of its relaunch by the Minister for Justice and Equality. He has also acted as an expert adviser to Transparency International Ireland.

In addition, he has contributed 25 chapters to edited books, and presented over 75 conference papers.

Research Interests

My research orientation is heavily focused on the interface that exists between criminal law, penology, and history. I am interested in tracing and examining histories of the present of conceptual ideas and governing principles that shape our current penal and criminal complex. This necessarily involves a fusion of legal, historical and sociological thinking.

I have developed strong links with various organisations including the Fulbright Commission, An Garda Siochana, Criminal Assets Bureau, CEPOL, the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Mental Health Commission, the Inspector of Prisons, the IPRT, ACJRD, ICCL, the National Disability Authority, the Victims of Crime Unit in the Department of Justice and Equality, and Commission for the Support of Victims of Crime.



Teaching Interests

I have undertaken a postgraduate certificate, diploma and MA in teaching and learning (2004-2007). My teaching has been recognised in the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching 2005-2006 , and I was a member of the University Teaching and Learning Committee at UCC (2012-2014).
