Ioanna Gouseti, PhD

Leverhulme Research Fellow

I am currently a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the Department of Sociology at the LSE, where I teach criminology and research methodology courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.


My research lies at the intersection of gender & crime, gendered harassment in public, public attitudes to crime, public criminology and research methods. I have a PhD in Social Research Methodology from the LSE Department of Methodology. My background is in Criminology and Sociology.

Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.

Zora Neale Hurston (1891 - 1960)

My research interests include gender and crime, public attitudes to crime, public criminology, and research methodology. I currently conduct research on gendered harassment in public as well as on public attitudes to crime and crime information processing.


My previous research has focused on fear of crime, standards of behaviour in the police's workplace and restorative justice.
