I am Visiting Research Fellow at NSCR in Amsterdam and have accrued 115,000 Euros for this project under their auspices with my collaborators Jean-Louis Van Gelder and Marco Otte. We have undertaken two large studies with convicted burglars, other prisoners, matched non-offender and students who have 'burgled' houses in a virtual neighbourhood while we examine their decision-making and behaviour. The project has received worldwide interest as well as underpinning a new theory of 'dysfunctional expertise'. We have two PhD students working on the project too.
Virtual environments represent a robust and valuable way to study criminal behaviour (not just burglary). Their use represents a paradigm shift in the way we understand crime.
