Prof's criminal plans.

A PROFESSOR whose research specialises in violent crime and criminal identity has returned to Teesside to take up a new role.

Professor Simon Winlow has joined the university's Social Futures Research Institute as a professor of criminology.

It is his second stint at Teesside, having previously worked at the university as a senior lecturer in criminology between 2001 and 2005.

"I'm delighted to return to work at Teesside University", said Professor Winlow.

"The job gives me the opportunity to work with some of the most talented criminologists in the world, and I'm very optimistic about the continued development of Teesside's global reputation for excellence in this area."

Professor Winlow joins Teesside University from the University of York.

Having gained his degree and PhD from Durham University, Professor Winlow has published widely in the area of criminology and sociology and his best known works include Badfellas (2001), Bouncers: Violence and Governance in the Night-time Economy (2003, with Hobbs, Hadfield and Lister), Violent Night, (2006, with Hall) and Criminal Identities and Consumer Culture (2008, with Hall and Ancrum).
