Director of Operations, Canadian Society of Evidence-Based Policing. PhD Candidate, Western University
I am a doctoral student at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, and am the Director of Operations for the Canadian Society of Evidence-Based Policing. As a Criminologist, I have a broad interest in policing research and developing evidence-based approaches to policing and crime prevention, including issues related to firearms and police social media use.
My most recent work examines police responses to missing persons cases by conducting interviews with police personnel from across Canada. The purpose of this research is to fill in knowledge gaps on ‘what works,’ ‘what doesn’t work,’ and ‘what we still don’t know’ in terms of how to most effectively and efficiently respond to missing person cases.
Additionally, I have launched a large-scale, national project aimed at studying missing persons in Canada, with the particular intention of providing research evidence on patterns, predictions, and prevention strategies.
