Rebecca is a statistician who has moved into Criminology from Education. Criminology is just one of the many social science topics that fascinate her, and she is particularly interested in the relationship between geography and crime.
She is currently working on research that looks at trends in patterns of victimisation over time, using data from the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey. To support this and for future use, she is also compiling a list of changes in the survey between sweeps that are relevant to incidence of victimisation.
