Dr Andy Kaladelfos is Lecturer in Criminology in the School of Social Sciences at the University of New South Wales. Prior to UNSW, Andy was Senior Research Fellow with the ARC Laureate Fellowship Project ‘Prosecution and the Criminal Trial in Australian History’ at the Griffith Criminology Institute, Griffith University (2012-2018). 

Andy's research specialities are sexual and gender-based violence, queer criminology, immigration regulation, and homophobic and transphobic violence. Originally trained in history, Andy's research is interdisciplinary, using methods and approaches from historical studies, legal studies, criminology, psychology, feminist studies and digital humanities to analyse how experiences of and responses to violence change over time, to examine the nature of the criminal justice system, and the shifting relationship between law and society. Andy's research combines quantitative and qualitative methods to explain longitudinal trends in changing legal, political, and social contexts.

At Griffith University Andy and colleagues created 'The Prosecution Project', a history of the criminal trial in Australia: https://prosecutionproject.griffith.edu.au/

Andy is a proud trans man whose pronouns are They or He.
