Dr. Danielle Tyson
Dr Danielle Tyson is Co-Director of the Monash Deakin Addressing Filicide Research Hub and Senior Lecturer in Criminology in the School of Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts and Education, Deakin University. Dr Tyson is recognised nationally and internationally as an expert in the field of family violence as it relates to domestic homicide and filicide (the killing of a child by a parent or step-parent). Danielle’s research develops and builds collaborations with key stakeholders and experts in the field to deliver a sound evidence base that can both inform and improve legal policy and findings that are relevant and have impact. Danielle conducts research in the area of family violence, legal responses in cases of men and women who kill their intimate partners; the effects of reforms to the law of homicide; the nexus between family violence and homelessness in women’s bail and remand outcomes; and the merits of police body-worn camera technology in responding to domestic violence in Queensland and Western Australia. The findings of her research have been published in co-authored reports with government and non-government stakeholders and community organisations, high impact journals and presentations at national and international conferences. Danielle has worked on a number of interdisciplinary, cross-Faculty and cross-institutional collaborations that have received funding to support her research including the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust; Legal Services Board Victoria; the Australian Institute of Criminology’s Criminology Research Grant Scheme; and the Commonwealth Attorney General.
