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 is currently working on a number papers ad projects. This includes research work in the areas of:
