Justin graduated magna cum laude from Rutgers University in 2003 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. After graduating he worked as a forensic investigator with the Department of Human Services where he specialised in conducting forensic interviews of child sex abuse victims.

After several years of working as a practitioner he attended Boston University where he completed his MA in Criminal Justice (2007).  Justin spent the next two years working as a criminal investigator for the Office of the Public Defender in New Jersey before joining the Department of Security and Crime Science at UCL in September 2009.

Justin has diverse research interests that include the spatio-temporal analysis of crime, evidence-based policing, situational crime prevention, agent-based modelling and simulation and the use of quantitative methods in crime science. Justin’s most recent projects include an analysis of the temporal variation of alcohol related anti-social behaviour and crime at Premier League football matches in London, an evaluation of the football banning order, and numerous case studies on the spatial and temporal patterns of crime and disorder around football grounds in England.
