I studied for 10 years at Essex, completing a BA Psycholinguistics (2002), MA Criminology (2004), MA Criminological Research (2005) and finally PhD in Sociology in 2009.
I work full time as a Senior Lecturer in Criminology at Buckinghamshire New University, I am an active member of the Forensic Linguist community and I also take on criminological and forensic linguistic consultancy and deliver police training in interviewing techniques. I’ve recently published a book – Carter, E. (2011)’Analysing police interviews: Laughter, confessions and the tape’. London: Continuum, which was awarded the ‘Criminology Book Prize 2012’ from the British Society of Criminology.
I enjoy an active life to balance out all those hours I spend transcribing and analysing data! I rock climb, run (all distances, but prefer mid and long distance races), and have started taking up the silks and trapeze in circus skills training. I also like to bake and have started a small business called Little Little to sell my cakey goodies.
