Professor Melissa Bull joined QUT School of Justice as Director of QUT Centre for Justice in September 2019.  Prior to this Melissa worked in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Griffith University.  While at Griffith University Melissa held a number of research leadership roles, including Deputy Director and then Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (2012-15). From 2016 she was the leader of the Justice, Law and Society research program in the Griffith Criminology Institute.
