Mr Alan Leonard
Having graduated from the University of Cardiff, I spent a number of years working in Local Government as a strategy adviser and crime analyst, where I commenced my return to academia by studying for a part-time PhD at the University of Portsmouth.
Prior to my appointment as a lecturer in 2014 I gained economic analysis experience as a Research Assistant and taught economics at the International College of Portsmouth.
My research interests include:
- Economics and crime prevention (Community Safety) – youth, drugs, anti-social behaviour, fear and supporting vulnerable people in the community
- Economic Impact Assessments – their practical use and potential abuse
- The music industry
