About Me

I am a PhD candidate in Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania. My research focuses on Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), specifically on the effect of door locks and outdoor lighting on crime. My other interests include making crime data more accessible to the public and the role of private action in crime prevention.
