ABOUT

I am a criminologist and business and human rights researcher. I am driven by a desire to understand complex, organizational forms of crimes and harms, their impacts and how society and institutions seek to control these global and multifaceted phenomena. In particular, I am interested in the harmful outcomes of corporate activities in the areas of human rights abuses, atrocity crimes, environmental harms and corruption. My research is interdisciplinary, combines qualitative and quantitative methods and takes a multi-level approach, considering institutional, organizational and inter-personal aspects of crime and harmful outcomes.
