My research interests include crime, deviance, victimization, extraordinary group behavior, new religious movements, cold case homicide investigation, statistical analysis, and field research.  My M.A. thesis utilized a general strain perspective in analyzing the multidimensional relationship between cyber-victimization and delinquency, while accounting for cyber-bullying, face-to-face bullying, and other known correlates.  I hope to advance my research interests into the area of social media and big data, specific to radicalization, terrorism and United State cyber-security policy in the 21st century.
