Hope Kent

PhD Researcher
University of Kent

Hope Kent is an ESRC funded PhD student at the University of Exeter, studying advanced quantitative methods for the social sciences. Her projects elucidate vulnerable groups in the criminal justice system through quantitative data. In her PhD, she is using linked Ministry of Justice and Department of Education data to understand pathways into the justice system through education and social care outcomes. She is interested in social models of disability, and in exploring how we can make systems accessible and appropriate for people with neurodisabilities.

Prior to her PhD she completed a degree in applied clinical psychology and worked as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner in the NHS. Alongside her PhD, she works as a Research Assistant for the TRYJustice Network, and for the Acquired Brain Injury Justice Network. She also volunteers for PINK Concussions, a charitable organisation that advocates for women and girls who have experienced traumatic brain injury.
