Jacqueline is a criminologist and Head of Global Research for the Walk Free Foundation, with a technical role on the quantitative program. Jacqueline holds Bachelor’s degrees in Arts and Psychology, and a Masters in Criminal Justice. During an 18 year career in research, Jacqueline has focused on social justice and human rights issues, with a particular interest in using statistics to unpack the causes of crime, understand vulnerability and resilience, and to use that information to drive policy change.
