Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the evolutionary mechanisms of crime causation and their neurophysiological manifestations. For my reserach, I have developed and tested the Retribution and Reciprocity Model (RRM) to explain criminal behaviour through cooperative mechanisms.

My particular expertise lies with the use of quantitative methods within an inter-disciplinary framework, including criminology, neuroscience, and game theory.
