City (Address)


Country (Address)



I am PhD sociology student with an interest in society in general and criminology in specific. My research focus is on interactional patterns observed in randomly occurring violence in public places and the effect bystanders have on how violence unfolds on prison settings as well as criminological research methods, specifically visual data analysis (video footage as data).
