Research on crime & place, studying outcomes of violent crime, fear of crime, disorder and arson.

Currently mostly working on the issue of vulnerable neighborhoods - deprived neighborhoods impacted by criminal networks as defined by the national police in Sweden. This is done in two separate but related projects. The first, which for my part is unfinanced, is about increasing our understanding for gangviolence, in particular gun violence, and is done in collaboration with Joakim Sturup and Amir Rostami and others. The project has so far resulted in three published papers, one on near repeat patterns for gun violence, one updated analysis on gun violence and hand grenade detonations, and one of trends for gun violence in Sweden.

The other project is a development project with the national police, funded by the civil contingencies agency, where we work with police departments in four cities to assist them in developing a better understanding of vulnerable neighborhoods and how to work there.

In 2017 I worked on a project funded by K2 to improve our understanding of risk for violence by local bus stops.

Other recent publications are on stability and change of near repeat burglary patterns (with Laura Hoppe, European Journal of Criminology), on the geographical unreliabiliy of police data (Nordic Policing) and on the police intervention at a drug hot spot in the city of Malmö (with Ina Hennen, also in Nordic Policing).

My PHD thesis was on neighborhoods, collective efficacy and crime. Key findings were that neighborhood processes are likely best understood if neighborhoods are defined on a smaller geographical scale - micro-neighborhoods - and that collective efficacy is a very strong predictor of street violence, but not of out doors arson.

Studying the spatial distribution of criminological outcomes by using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and statistical analysis, sometimes combined with key informant and/or focus group interviews.

Developed a mobile phone based method for measurement and analysis of grafitti and vandalism through Systematic Social Observation (SSO) departing from Sampson & Raudenbusch (1999) that has been employed to better understand the geography of physical disorder and social disorganization.
