My research interests include digitalization, the policing of transnational crime, gender and bureaucracy, gender and corruption, and policy implementation.

 

I am currently researching the effect of digitalization on international police co-operation, the role of trust for collaboration, and the relationship between prostitution law and sex-buying behavior. I primarily use quantitative analysis, and additionally experimental, survey research, and text analysis.
