Thank you for visiting my website.  I am an assistant 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 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?

I have more information on the site about me, my current projects, my presentations, and my publications.  Please contact me with any questions.
