Courtney Field


I’m gay and I’m a criminologist and forensic epidemiologist. //

I have a PhD in psychology and law from Murdoch University in Western Australia and I currently supervise a prison-based health research program in Sydney. My doctoral research examined the structure of forgiveness and revenge in traumatized victims of violent crime. I’m really passionate about promoting the visibility of LGBTQI+ scientists and placing queer issues front and center in the discussion around crime and society. Sorry for the pic—I usually dress a little more professionally in the office!
