Victoria’s research has focused on anti-terrorist legislation, emergency law and civil liberties and human rights. Her doctoral thesis examined the introduction and development of anti-terrorist legislation in the United Kingdom, from the emergence of agrarian violence and violent republican separatism in 18th Century Ireland, to the advent of the present threat from Islamist extremism, and sought to identify aspects of continuity and change within these phenomena.

She is currently working on projects that examine the recent changes to anti-terrorist legislation and emergency law in the United Kingdom.
