As an applied (behavioural) sociologist of Deviance and Crime, I am interested in how the behaviours of individuals and groups are influenced by the micro, meso and macro environments. In particular, I am interested in the importance that unconscious processes have in explaining behaviours and the influence that environment has on individuals’ unconscious internalization processes. I abide by the Code of Ethics of the American Society of Criminology.
