About

I have been a research and teaching academic at eight universities since 1975, including two in the United States. These tenured positions have been essentially focused on criminology, criminal justice and social justice. Since 2005 I have been at James Cook University and been responsible for the development of the Bachelor of Arts (Crminology major), Bachelor of Social Sciences (Social and Criminal Justice major) and the Masters of Social Science (Criminology).

My research background includes major projects on youth crime, crime prevention, correctional practices, penology and Sudanese refugeees in Australia.
