2010 Poster Series
Integrating criminological theory, advanced computational techniques and statistical analyses of administrative data, our research program aims to promote informed policy decisions within the criminal justice domain.
Research Program Projects
- Criminal justice system modelling
- Offending careers
- Risk assessment and analysis
- Crime and place
- Agent based modelling
- Computational criminology
- Juvenile Justice Simulation Model
Our research aims to assist policy makers and promote a whole of government approach to issues facing the justice system. Findings result in improved understanding about how the system operates and provides an evidence base for planning and resource allocation. We actively promote the use of advanced analytical techniques to aid decision-making through workshops, secondments, seminars, and presentations to practitioners.
Our research is funded by the Queensland Government, Griffith University and by national competitive research grants. Additionally, we undertake contract research projects consistent with our research focus and expertise.
