Gill joined ICPR in 2003, having previously worked on health based social research at the Centre for Drugs and Health Behaviour, Imperial College, London. Her current research interests focus on victims’, witnesses and defendants experiences and understandings of the criminal courts, and perceptions about access to justice across the court and tribunals system. Her publications include Inside Crown Court: Personal experiences and questions of legitimacy (Policy Press, 2015, with Jessica Jacobson and Amy Kirby). She has also conducted research exploring professionalization and the development of evidence-based practice in policing and crime reduction. Her previous research includes evaluations of criminal justice interventions, such as arrest and court diversion schemes for street sex workers and offenders with mental health and substance misuse problems and 'One-Stop-Shop' community services for women offenders. She has also undertaken research on peer mentoring in the criminal justice system and its value for supporting offenders leaving custody.
