In this session (split into three parts), Hannah Marshall interviews Dr Emma Wincup, Research Manager (Qualitative) at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation @jrf_uk. Emma discusses her recent transition from a career as a criminology/social policy academic to the JRF while reflecting on the changes she’s seen in criminology over time.
Dr Emma Wincup was a university academic for over twenty years prior to joining JRF, teaching and researching on crime and social policy. Most of her research focused on people with complex needs including homelessness, offending, and drug and alcohol problems. Her role at JRF involves commissioning and managing external projects, alongside developing JRF’s expertise in qualitative research, which she shares information about on Twitter.
