Dr Matthew M. Morgan

Matthew Morgan is a Lecturer in Criminology in the Faculty of Law and Business. Matthew's teaching and research interests include policing vulnerable and diverse populations with a particular focus on how police interact with people with mental illness. He has worked with police organisations in the UK and in Australia to inform best practice for when police interact with people suffering mental health crises in the community.

Matthew's work is critical and interdisciplinary and draws upon criminological theory as well as human rights law and principles to understand how marginalised individuals interact with the criminal justice system. His research has led to the publication of several peer-reviewed journal articles that have been widely cited in academic and media outlets. Matthew is also a mental health awareness advocate who routinely engages with mainstream media outlets to help inform public policy and debate regarding complex mental illnesses affecting youth and the general population.

Matthew is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and incorporates innovative and engaging pedagogical practices into his teaching to facilitate student-centred learning in the classroom. His current teaching covers Violent Crime and Society and Victimology.
