Postdoctoral Researcher

Institute of Sociology and Social Psychology, University of Cologne


I am a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Institute of Sociology and Social Psychology (ISS) at the University of Cologne. I am also a research fellow for the Crime Events in Context research group at the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement (NSCR) and for the Crim-Ap research group at the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU.

My research interest is focused on understanding how different social phenomena distribute in space and time. My main focus has been the study of spatial and temporal variation of crime and its correlates. I am also interested in the new methods and measurement of emotion perception.
