I am developing my dissertation with a focus on online victimization among juveniles and young adults. My research interests include crime, deviance, victimization, extraordinary group behavior, new religious movements, statistical analysis, field research, and sociological theory. My M.A. thesis utilized a general strain perspective in analyzing the multidimensional relationship between cyber-victimization and delinquency, while accounting for cyber-bullying, face-to-face bullying, and other known correlates. I hope to advance my research interests into the area of social media and big data, specific to radicalization, terrorism and United State cyber-security policy in the 21st century.
