Expertise

Jess prefers to conduct research with applied outcomes that can contribute to social change. Jess’s recent work has been focussed on the experiences of marginalised and criminalised populations, including:

  • Transgender people in prisons
  • Policing domestic and family violence
  • Rural, regional and remote policing
  • Experiences of academics with disabilities.

Collaboration

Through the Centre for Justice (QUT), Jess has partnered with the Queensland Domestic Violence Advocacy Centre to undertake an evaluation of a domestic violence support worker embedded in a regional police station.

Current projects

Jess was a Research Fellow, and now Senior Research Assistant, on the Preventing Gendered Violence – Lessons from the Global South project. This project examines the unique features of Argentina’s women’s police stations and their potential for translation to Australian contexts to improve the police response to domestic and family violence.

Jess, in collaboration with Professor Nicole Asquith, has recently completed the pilot study of Small town policing: Community-police relationship in remote communities. This research examines the everyday policing of RRR communities, the relationships between RRR police and their communities, and how communities engage with their local police to enhance safety.

Initially employed as a Research Assistant, Jess has transitioned to a Chief Investigator on the Scholarship Disabled project, which examines the experiences of academics with disabilities in Australian universities.
