Thank you for visiting my website. I am School Associate Director and an Associate Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University.
My work largely focuses on three areas:
- What can be learned about “what works” from prior research to inform how police and other criminal justice practitioners do their work?
- To what extent are police officers open to using research to guide practice? What explains variability in receptivity to research and evidence-based policing?
- What are the effects of innovative police strategies on crime and perceptions of legitimacy?
You can learn more about my work on evidence-based policing below in a video interview filmed during the International Symposium on Policing and Evidence-based Practice at Birkbeck University in London in June 2018:
