My published output to date has primarily been concerned with trends in the distribution of victimisation across citizens and households, and an appropriate technique for weighting these by seriousness or har, This remains one of my central topics of interest. Chapters from my doctoral thesis on repeat victimisation and the cross-national crime drop have yet to be submitted as articles to peer-reviewed journals but this is in train and the linked topics also remain of focal interest.
Given my experience in quantitative analysis in criminology, a number of large datasets are now accessible to me and afford extensive and exciting opportunities for original work. Some preliminary work on the complex relationships between statistics and crime has been undertaken, and funding sought for a more ambitious research programme.
I am largely interested in large scale quantitative projects that aim to produce practice-oriented outcomes. Particular areas of interest include prevention of repeat victimisation, examination of crime ‘harm’ and ability to focus policing efforts as the most harmful criminal activity, and, finally, areal distribution of immigration and its impact on crime rates.

I am interested in supervising projects that explore:
Masters by Research and PhD student projects are welcome.
There is scope for developing handheld devices indicating crime risk by household type and prior victimisation experience.
I am the module convenor for the module ‘Explaining and Responding to Crime’ (HIB2002) for 2015/2016.
In addition to module leadership on the module ‘Explaining and Responsing to Crime&requo;, I currently contribute to teaching across the Criminology undergraduate courses. This includes teaching on modules:
