Background

Dr Carrie-Anne Myers joined City in 2006 as a lecturer in Criminology and Sociology. After completing, at the London School of Economics, an Economic and Social Research (ESRC)-funded PhD on School Violence and Bullying, she spent two years at the University of Surrey as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in the UK Observatory for the Promotion of Non-Violence. She worked on projects that included: 'Violence Reduction in Schools', with the DfES, 'The Mental Health of Young Offenders', with the Prison Service, 'An Evaluation of Anti-Bullying Websites', 'An Evaluation of Peer Support to Reduce School Bullying' and 'An Assessment of the School Climate to Measure Fear of School and the Efficacy of Peer Support'.
She has taught at both undergraduate and Masters level at Brunel, Goldsmiths, LSE and Surrey.
Her research specialisms are primarily in the fields of youth crime, bullying and victimisation processes. She has published extensively on these topics in a range of journals and book chapters.
She is a member of the British Society of Criminology and country co-ordinator of the European Network for Social and Emotional Competence (ENSEC). Her latest book, co-edited with Helen Cowie, is Bullying Among University Students, published by Routledge in 2016.
