Short Biography

Rebecca joined the Crime Strand of AQMeN in October 2013. She is currently involved with two AQMeN projects, one looking at patterns of victimisation and what individual and area-level variables are associated with these ("The changing profile of victimisation in Scotland"), and the other looking at offender specialisation.

Rebecca has mostly used multilevel modelling in previous research, working in MLwiN, but has some familiarity with other techniques, such as latent class analysis, and software packages, particularly R and to some extent SPSS. She has taught at workshops on multilevel modelling, count data, and latent class analysis for AQMeN.
