Loene is a senior lecturer in Criminology in the College of Arts, Law and Education. She is a researcher in the Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies and the Institute for the Study of Social Change. Loene undertakes applied and interdisciplinary research in policing, forensic studies, and higher education. She has a particular interest in how effective communication in the criminal justice process can contribute to improved justice outcomes. This includes interagency, interdisciplinary, and intercultural communication.

Loene’s research explores communication in police investigative interviews, including instances that require interpreters. It also examines the communication of findings and opinions of forensic scientists to police, lawyers, and judges. Her co-authored book (with Roberta Julian and Rob White) on forensic studies is forthcoming with Routledge. Currently, she is working on a collaborative research project with Dr Danielle Watson (Queensland University of Technology), to explore Australia’s role in strengthening policing in the Pacific Islands.

Biography

Loene was appointed as a lecturer in Criminology in 2015. Since that time, she has been responsible for teaching a range of Criminology units and supervising student research. While undertaking her PhD from 2012, Loene tutored in Criminology and Sociology (School of Social Sciences) and Psychology (School of Medicine); and was a research assistant at the University of Tasmania and Charles Sturt University. Prior to joining UTAS, Loene taught languages in NSW schools and led several study tours to Japan. Loene spent time in remote Aboriginal community schools in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

Expertise

Loene undertakes research in policing, forensic studies, and higher education in criminology. She has a particular interest in how effective communication in the criminal justice process can contribute to improved justice outcomes. This includes interagency, interdisciplinary and intercultural communication.

Strengthening policing in the Pacific: Polynesian perspectives on policing family violence (2019)$8,344
Description
The Australian Government has an important role in strengthening policing in the Pacific Islands. Ideally, the partnership benefits local communities in particular, and the region more broadly. This project is undertaken in collaboration with Dr Danielle Watson (University of the South Pacific). It explores the perspectives of police officers and community members in Polynesian contexts on the policing of family violence. It aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of whether and how international 'best practices' can be adopted, adapted or transformed to meet local needs. In doing so, the project will lay the groundwork for further research on Australia's role in strengthening policing in the Pacific.
