I formed onEvidence in response to growing feedback from practitioners, policy makers and front-line professionals about the need for affordable research services and evidence based training to inform practice.”

About me

I’m Dr. Roxanne Khan, a Chartered Psychologist and Research Scientist with 20 years experience in the education and research sector. I author books, journal articles, and conference presentations for international audiences. I am Senior Lecturer and Course Leader for BSc Honours Forensic Psychology at the University of Central Lancashire.

Research informed teaching is my passion. As an award-winning researcher, I am experienced in conducting studies in a range of topics that forward personal, community and social change, and improve knowledge and evaluate current practices. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with students and professionals through lectures and training workshops, seminars, conferences and a private consultancy portfolio.

In 2018, I formed the Honour Abuse Research Matrix, a multi-disciplinary network of academics, police, safeguarding practitioners, survivors, policy makers and specialist trainers dedicated to eradicating harmful practices, including honour violence and other forms of domestic abuse.

I provide specialised training for the police, social services and safeguarding professionals, as well as psychological and social research and education consulting service.

I am Academic Partner for Lancashire Partnership Against Domestic Abuse – a multi-agency steering group based at Lancashire Constabulary Headquarters. I am also Expert Advisor and Research Ethics Committee Reviewer, Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse, a multi-disciplinary team, funded by the Home Office, and hosted by Barnardo‚Äôs. I am also Associate Editor for the new journal, Equity in Education & Society.

onEvidence has enabled me to extend my psychological and social research and evidence-based training to a wider audience and, at the same time, offer other academics and professionals the opportunity to get involved. Establishing onEvidence to inform policy and improve front-line practice is my way of helping to make the world a safer place.

If you would like to talk about any of the research services, training or consultancy services we offer, it would be great to hear from you.
