His research interests include pathways to lone-actor terrorism and exploring the role of the Internet in radicalisation and extremist offending. Previous publications include Lone-actor terrorism – A systematic literature review (Kenyon, Baker-Beall & Binder, 2021), Understanding the Role of the Internet in the Process of Radicalisation: An Analysis of Convicted Extremists in England and Wales (Kenyon, Binder & Baker-Beall, 2021a) and Online Radicalization: Profile and Risk Analysis of Individuals Convicted of Extremist Offences (Kenyon, Binder & Baker-Beall, 2021b).
Dr Kenyon’s research exploring the role of the Internet in radicalisation pathways and offending of convicted extremists has continued post-doctorate.
