BIO

The majority of my research is concerned with understanding the spatial and/or temporal distribution of the criminal event and the role of scale with that understanding. More specifically, people and their resulting criminal activity are neither randomly nor evenly distributed across space and time, and my research in this area is concerned with understanding the factors that drive these spatial and temporal aspects of crime–environmental (spatial-temporal) criminology. This research has shown that criminal activity varies systematically with urban, social, and demographic geographies. Quantitative methodology underlies the majority of my research. My spatial crime analysis research, though theoretically grounded, primarily involves the application of exploratory spatial data analysis and spatial statistical techniques through the use of geographic information systems at multiple scales. In some instances this research has led to the development of new techniques, particularly in the testing of spatial point patterns. My future research will continue to focus on: the spatial and temporal distribution of the criminal event and geographic information science, specifically the development of point pattern analysis techniques and spatial statistical analysis.
