Laura Kennedy

Ph.D Student


Biography:

Laura graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in Law having developed a particular interest in criminal and family law. She completed the MPhil in Criminological Research at the University of Cambridge in 2017 and was awarded the Manuel López-Rey Graduate Prize for the best academic performance on the programme. For her MPhil thesis, Laura conducted research in schools to investigate the roles of morality and the ability to exercise self-control in school bullying and prosocial behaviour.

Research Interests

Laura’s ESRC and Trinity Hall funded research focuses on the causes and causal processes underpinning physical, verbal, and relational aggression in schools. Using an analytical framework coupled with situational methodologies, Laura’s project explores how and why these behaviours result from the interaction between young people and their social environments. A particular emphasis is placed on theorising and testing the nature and role of peer influence within this theoretical model.

Supervisor: Dr Kyle Treiber.
