She has recently held two Economic and Social Research Council grants to study these topics and has worked as a consultant to prison architects and senior prison service personnel around the world. She has published extensively on various aspects of prisons and imprisonment, including (with Ben Crewe and Jamie Bennett) The Handbook on Prisons (2nd ed., 2016, Routledge).
