Bio and Work
I am a recent PhD in criminal justice at John Jay College – The City University of New York Graduate Center and incoming Assistant Professor at the University of Tampa. I hold a B.A. in criminal justice and sociology from Simpson College, and prior to beginning my tenure as a student and researcher I worked for several midwestern police departments as a crime analyst. My interests include the spatial analysis of crime, policing and crime prevention strategies, quasi-experimental research design, and systematic social observation. I have also worked with Dr. Eric Piza as the primary quantitative methodologist on two funded research grants in close collaboration with police departments in Newark, NJ, Chicago, IL, and Kansas City, MO. My scholarship has recently been published in the Journal of Criminal Justice, Justice Evaluation Journal, and Criminology and Public Policy.
