Gareth Furby took his first degree in Economics and Geography at UCL.
He turned down a postgraduate place in Economics at Cambridge to train as a journalist, but to returned to academe as a Reuter Fellow at Oxford. At the London School of Economics he took a Distinction level Masters in Media and Communications.
At the Department of Security and Crime Science, Gareth is researching links between media reporting of knife crime and the incidence of such crime. His interest is in how behaviours and attitudes in vulnerable groups of teenagers may be influenced by mediated accounts of knife crime seen in print and on television. He is carrying out this research part time, and expects it will take from four to five years to compete. His working title is "The media, the herd, and the so called knife crime epidemic: an invesigation of possible media effects on criminal behaviours."
Gareth Furby is an award winning BBC journalist.
