Dr. Philip Mullen

Research Manager

As our Research Manager, Philip is responsible for developing and managing our research to support us in working towards a smarter criminal justice system where the revolving door is both avoidable and escapable. He is particularly passionate about co-production and involving those with lived experience throughout the research process wherever possible and enhancing the impact of research, both in terms of policy development and for those with lived experience who help to co-develop our research. Before joining Revolving Doors he managed peer research projects at Toynbee Hall, supporting and training diverse groups of people with lived experience to co-design, conduct, analyse, and present timely and ethical research for a range of audiences. His academic background includes a PhD at Newcastle University which explored the diverse care needs of homeless young people using a Participatory Action Research (PAR) approach and undergraduate teaching experience.

“I am excited to join Revolving Doors because of the exciting opportunities to co-develop research alongside those with lived experience of the criminal justice system. I really look forward to collaborating with the team and partners to further develop our approach of putting lived experience and impact at the heart of our research and to conducting research that has meaningful, lasting and impactful change for individuals, services, the wider criminal justice system, and society at large.”
