About the author

Ian Brunton-Smith is a Professor of Criminology and Research Methods at the University of Surrey, having previously worked at the University of Warwick, where he was Director of the Warwick Q-Step centre. He has always been a bit of a 'jobbing researcher' with wide ranging interests in the application of advanced quantitative methods across the Social Sciences. Currently his interests in Criminology include prison effects, the spatial patterning of crime and perceptions of crime, and the role of neighbourhood context. In methodology, he is particularly interested in new developments in multilevel modelling, bayesian statistics, and survey methodology.
