Professor of Sociology, Western University
Having founded the Canadian Society of Evidence Based Policing in 2015, I now sit as the Chair of its Advisory Council. I am also a (Full) Professor of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario, a member of the College of New Scholars of the Royal Society of Canada, a Senior Research Fellow with the (US) National Police Foundation, and the Research Fellow for both the London and Barrie Police Services. In my spare time, I run #CrimComm with my colleague Prof. Aili Malm.
My previous experience includes being a former member of the Board of SERENE-RISC (a NCE-funded cybercrime research consortium) and a Senior Researcher and University Representative for the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society. I have also been a member of the Canadian Council of Academies' Expert Panel on the Future of Canadian Policing and sat on numerous boards and working groups related to community safety.
