Biography

Dr Nathan Hughes is Senior Lecturer in the School of Social Policy at the University of Birmingham, and Visiting Senior Fellow at the Centre for Adolescent Health at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Melbourne. His research examines the explanations apparent in emerging understandings in the developmental neurosciences for pathways into offending among young people with neurodevelopmental impairments. He therefore traces the experiences of young people affected by cognitive, socio-emotional and communication difficulties within education and criminal justice settings. His work is crucially concerned with applications to policy and professional practice.
