My current research interests centre on three areas – sentencing principles; the idea of preventive justice, and the need for safeguards where ‘the protection of the public’ is invoked in support of coercive measures; and the justifications for convicting people for omissions, i.e. for failing to act in a given situation, and particularly exploring the duties that citizens do or ought to have.
