Personal profile

Research interests

My Master of Criminology thesis was on statement analysis, specifically examining whether there are differences between deceptive and truthful statements. My doctoral research examined the theory and process differences in criminal profiling methods.

My current textbooks include Applied Crime Analysis, Profiling and Serial Crime, and Forensic Criminology.

I am currently conducting research that expands on my previous research on statement analysis. I am interested in all aspects of decision making in applied crime analysis, such as the power and impact of satisficing hypotheses, the role of victim precipitation in offending and victimisation, the role of self-esteem in offending and victimisation, and the neurological correlates of offending and victimisation.

Future work in the field will expand upon an applied crime analysis which I developed and involves the systematic and idiographic examination of a case to answer investigative and legal questions.

Statement for HDR students

I have supervised doctoral theses on homicide solvability, staged crime scenes, self-esteem and crime, and victim factors in offending.

  • Statement analysis
