Research overview

Monsuru is a research fellow and currently working on a Home Office project, “More with Less: Authentic Implementation of Evidence-Based Predictive Patrol Plans”. His research interests cover predictive policing, geo-statistics and application of GIS to social-economic areas such as crime and health. His current research interests include the development of individual-level framework for synthesising the complex interactions between human (offenders') behaviours in relation to their surrounding environment.
