Dr Sam Lewis

Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice

After completing a PhD in the School of Law at Bristol University, I held post-doctoral research posts at the Universities of Bristol and Swansea (1999 – 2004). I joined the University of Leeds as a Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice in 2004. 

Between 2006 and 2012 I was an RCUK Academic Research Fellow. Much of my work is underpinned by a longstanding interest in youth justice, from my PhD to subsequent local, national and international research.

Dr Sam Lewis talks about her study of the use of anti-social behaviour interventions with young people, funded by The Nuffield Foundation.
