3rd Publication is OUT!
I am happy to announce that my third publication, "Crime in the New U.S. Epicenter of COVID-19," was published two days ago in Crime Prevention & Community Safety. This article had been accepted earlier in 2021 with several months between initial acceptance and publication. This is not uncommon for academic journals.
The figures came out really well, in color, that demonstrate how certain criminological theories held up under pressure from intense COVID case/hospitalization/death in the city of Los Angeles towards the end of 2020. You can read the article HERE.
Without stealing my own thunder, some theories were supported, other theories were partially supported, and still other theories were not supported by the data (taken from Los Angeles Police Department between 2017 and 2020).
I am presently working on a number of research projects, two of which also use time series analysis. It is a surprisingly elegant methodology, and I look forward to using it more in my future work!
