My research focuses on sexuality, criminology and qualitative methods. At the moment I am analysing data from child sexual abuse hotlines to find out what triggers digital bystanders to react and report pornography. I have recently worked on a report to the EU Commision on platforms for user generated sexual images.

In my Ph.D. I studied how the then new pheomena of sexting and non-consentual sexual images changes young people’s life and sexuality, building on and developing our current knowledge about young people’s use of pornography. The project consisted of a narrative and visual analysis of qualitative data both from police cases of non-consensual pornography and from interviews with young people about sexting.
