About Dr Antoinette Huber

In 2015, Antoinette was awarded an MPhil in Criminological Research from the University of Cambridge and completed a PhD in Criminology in 2020. Antoinette’s PhD examines the impact of image-based sexual abuse on women and their experiences within the criminal justice system. Her previous research has focused upon gendered representations of offenders in the media, with a particular focus on ‘couples who kill’. Antoinette has worked closely with domestic violence organisations and currently works with Victims of Internet Crime (VOIC) providing support to victims of image-based sexual abuse. She also works with Crisis Skylight Merseyside providing educational support in the fight to end homelessness.
