Dr Tina Patel
Senior Lecturer in Criminology
Dr. Tina G. Patel completed her first degree (awarded 1999) in Criminal Justice at Liverpool John Moores University. Having been awarded funding from a fully competitive scheme, Tina spent 3½ years at the University of Sheffield studying for the qualification of PhD, in a study looking at race, identity and child adoption policy (awarded 2004). She was then appointed as a research fellow for a project funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, at Nottingham Trent University, looking at school exclusion and successful youth transitions within African-Caribbean communities (completed 2004). In September 2004, Tina returned to Liverpool John Moores University to take up a post as a lecturer in Criminology and Sociology. Tina joined the University of Salford in September 2008, as a lecturer in Criminology (with a specialism in violence). In August 2014, Tina was promoted to the position of Senior Lecturer. Her research and teaching interests relate to ‘race’ and racism, exclusion, police and violent behaviour.
