PhD Success - Dark Spaces of Precarity

Congratulations Richard!

Richard Kjellgren recently successfully defended his PhD, titled “Dark Spaces of Precarity”: Networks and Complexity in the Off-Street Sex Market, which was completed at the University of Stirling, and supervised by Dr Niall Hamilton-Smith and Dr Dave Griffiths. His PhD explored the role of technology in facilitating exploitation in the UK’s internet-mediated off-street sex market, and examined the role and methods used by law enforcement to generate open-source intelligence on exploitation and sex trafficking. Following the completion of this PhD, Richard joined the Salvation Army Centre for Addiction Services and Research, University of Stirling, as a Research Fellow, where he is currently using linked administrative health and justice data to explore health access for people released from Scottish prisons.
