I am a Research Associate at the Universities’ Police Science Institute (UPSI), itself a part of the Crime and Security Research Institute. My research focuses on network analysis and classification, spatial analysis, and quantitative analysis of large-scale and ‘big’ data over time.

I have utilized these research methods to investigate hotspots in criminal activity, to analyse open source information from a policing perspective, to understand patterns in public perceptions of crime and security threats, and to increase the accessibility of large datasets through meaningful visualisation.
