Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Criminology from Simon Fraser University and my MA and BA in Sociology from Queen’s University.

Prior to joining Laurier, I was a lecturer (assistant professor) at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. Throughout my career I have worked as a SafeGrowth® facilitator helping to develop safer and more liveable cities around the world.

My current research interests focus broadly on community safety, with a specific focus on policing, crime prevention and spatial criminology. I am working on projects to improve strategic planning and implementation with police services across Canada and developing crime prevention strategies in rural and small municipalities.

My research is informed by a social constructionist/critical realist approach, though I work extensively in the area of environmental criminology. I use a myriad of methods in addressing my research questions including action research, spatial and quantitative analysis and qualitative methods.
