As Senior Analyst, Beth leads on qualitative and quantitative analyses for research and consultancy projects. Beth has a range of experience in research across various criminal justice topics, including restorative practices and historic child sexual abuse. More recently, Beth has focused on drug supply, county lines and exploitation.
In her first research role, Beth worked at the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, analysing qualitative victim and survivor accounts, which had been shared with the Inquiry’s Truth Project. She used this analysis to inform various Truth Project research reports, which sought to capture victims and survivors’ experiences of child sexual abuse.
Beth then moved to the Serious and Organised Crime Research and Analysis Unit of the Home Office, where she focused on county lines research and evaluation. This is an area of interest she plans to pursue in her time at Crest Advisory.
Beth has a First Class BSc in Sociology from LSE and an MPhil in Criminological Research from the University of Cambridge. Her undergraduate thesis, for which she was awarded a prize for best dissertation that year, examined the extent to which restorative practices had been professionalised in the criminal justice field.
