Profile Summary

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’, exclusion, police and violent behaviour. Here she carried out research into the policing of racist violence in Northern Ireland; vehicle crime in deprived neighbourhoods; the foster care and identity development of refugee status children; and, ethnic profiling in the North-west of England within the 'war on terror' context.

 

Tina's areas of expertise are: Race and ethnicity; Identity (racial); Racism and exclusion; The family (black families and transracial adoption); Black and minority ethnic communities; Marginalised groups and communities; School exclusion and black African Caribbean youth; Institutional racism; Police, policing and challenges (especially in Northern Ireland and Greater Manchester); and, Racist violence / harassment.

 

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

- Ethnically defined deviant labels;

- Racially motivated hate crime;

- Neighbourhood conflcit and online communications

 

Tina would welcome research collaboration and supervision in any of the following areas: race/ethnicity; racial identity; violence (especially racist violence); police practice and culture; and qualitative research methods (in particular oral life history; researching marginalised groups and researching the police).

 

Since January 2015, Tina has been the programme leader for the undergraduate degree programmes in Criminology; Criminology & Sociology; and, Sociology.
