Research overview

My principal research interests lie in the field of crime policy, with focus on offenders' criminal careers. My doctorial research quantitatively investigates the risk of sexual offenders' recidivism over time, when a sexual offender can be considered low risk and whether criminal history and demographic factors affect sexual offenders' risk of recidivism. Several statistical models including duration analysis are implemented in SPSS and SAS.

Further research interests lie in cyber criminal activity, looking at new methodologies to obtain information on such offenders with a view to analysing their criminal careers.
