I have combined my experience and training in organisational psychology and accounting to develop a model of white collar crime that accommodates offences increasingly associated with fraud including organised crime and terrorism.
As an auditor, I detected and investigated frauds and advised organisations how to reduce their exposure to fraud victimisation.
During my experience and training in organisational psychology, I wrote a book chapter evaluating methods available to employers for screening job applicants for potential fraudsters and was involved in psychometric screening, assessment centres and coaching for financial services employees.
My PhD includes interviews with acquaintances of fraudsters and fraudsters who had not been convicted of their offences. The model I developed from these and other sources provides a framework to diverse stakeholders to (1) organise what is known about fraud and fraudsters and (2) conduct effective and efficient research to reduce the occurrence and impact of fraud and other offences. Thesis examiners' comments include "The candidate ... can fairly be regarded as an expert on fraud".
