Jo has been based at CWASU since 2001 as a research fellow and became a senior research fellow in 2013. She has been involved in several of CWASU’s key research and evaluation projects funded by the Home Office, such as the evaluation of the piloting of Domestic Violence Protection Orders (DVPOs) in England (2013), ‘A Gap or Chasm? Attrition in Reported Rape Cases’ (2005), ‘Sexual Assault Referral Centres: Developing Good Practice and Maximising Potentials’ (2004) and ‘Forensic Nursing: An option for improving responses to reported rape and sexual assault’ (2004).

Other projects Jo has worked on include ‘Realising Rights, Fulfilling Obligations: A Template Integrated Strategy on Violence Against Women for the UK’ (2011), ‘Different systems, similar outcomes? Tracking attrition in reported rape cases across Europe’ (2009).  Her recent work involves the development of an outcomes tool for support services working with victim-survivors as part of a project on responding to the long-term effects of violence and abuse and Hidden Depths - creating a data set from rape crisis centres.
