After completing my undergraduate and Masters degrees at Queen's University, I decided to pursue a PhD in Sociology with an emphasis on crime and criminal justice. My subsequent PhD at McMaster involved researching Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design in Ontario under the supervision of Dr. Graham Knight. Since that time, my research interests have focussed increasingly on the sociology of risk.
