My research interests include testing criminological theory, stalking, cybercrime, predictive analytic applications in criminology and criminal justice, and evaluative research. I have authored over 30 journal articles, book chapters, and technical reports examining the efficacy of self-control theory, routine activity theory, differential social control theory, general strain theory, and gender/general strain theory in accounting for crime and victimization (both online and offline) as well as gender differences in stalking acknowledgment, victim emotional and behavioral copings to the crime of stalking, and the effectiveness of formal and informal responses to the crime of stalking. My latest research focuses on the comparative performance of conventional statistical methods and machine learning and data mining techniques in predicting inmate misconduct.
