Who do you admire in your field and why?
People who have the patience, vision and dedication to design, implement and run the kind of ambitious longitudinal studies which deliver fundamental knowledge of criminal development in particular, and human development more generally, all the while knowing that the pay-off will be years away.
People who deliver the fundamental science upon which a healthy science of crime prevention and, further down the line, a responsible practice of crime prevention engineering can be built. Their work is the criminological equivalent of cohort studies that have led to leaps and bounds in our understanding of human disease and health.
Dr Noémie Bouhana
