Just before Christmas we said goodbye to Dr Molly Corlett who left Crest to start an exciting new role as Legal Project Support Officer at the Howard League Centre for Penal Reform.
Molly joined us as an Analyst Intern early in 2020, just six weeks before the UK went into lockdown. Soon after starting, Molly was recruited to a permanent role as Junior Analyst, and went on to produce some hugely important work for many of Crest’s major research projects, including County Lines & Looked After Children, Vulnerability with the Dawes Trust, and a project with West Yorkshire on Public Health and Violence.
"Though I wouldn’t necessarily have chosen ‘working from home during a pandemic’ as a postdoctoral career option, it’s a testament to the staff at Crest and the work we do that I’ve still felt engaged, excited about the projects I’m working on, and close to my colleagues. I’ve really appreciated the chance to learn not only about the criminal justice system but also about children’s social care, education and health inequalities."
Joe Caluori, Head of Research and Policy said:
"Molly produced some enormously valuable work during her time at Crest. The Howard League Centre for Penal Reform is lucky to have her. I feel certain her career will continue to go from strength to strength."
Molly, who gained her Ph.D. whilst working at Crest, will be hugely missed. We wish her every success in the future.
