Dr Troy Allard is a Senior Lecturer and Program Director (CCJ OUA) within the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice. He is interested in improving understanding about the causes of serious and persistent offending and ‘what works’ to reduce this offending. He is particularly interested in linking life-course and environmental criminology to determine the timing, nature and significance of risk/protective factors, whether differences are apparent based on ethnicity and the role of environmental factors such as remoteness. He is also interested in advancing the science of evaluation using innovative methods such as ‘realist’ evaluation to establish what works for whom and in what contexts. Given the importance of economic analysis for decision-making, an important component of his research involves establishing better estimates about the direct and indirect costs of crime. To support his research, Dr Allard has been a chief investigator on eight national competitive and 13 consultancy projects, which have attracted over $3.5 million. Research outputs include one edited book, over 20 peer reviewed articles and book chapters and over 20 reports to funding agencies.
