About me

Jack is a Lecturer in Criminology and Early Career Researcher at UWE, Bristol. For his doctoral studies he explored the emergence of the 'County Lines' drug supply model and how it is being responded to. This reflects his wider research interests into the functioning of illicit drug markets, drug law enforcement and drug policy.


Jack has published articles in several international journals, presented papers at a range of domestic and international conferences and regularly contributes to practitioner events. In 2019 he was awarded 'Best Early Career Researcher' by the International Society for the Study of Drug Policy. He is currently writing a monograph on the policing of drug markets in provincial towns.
