Dr Christine A. Weirich


I joined the University of Leeds in 2020 as a researcher on project IcARUS: Innovative AppRoach to Urban Security, led by the European Forum for Urban Security.    

Prior to this, I completed my PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2019, where my thesis focused on the issue of antiquities trafficking and situational crime prevention.  While at the University of Glasgow I was able to be a part of the Trafficking Culture research group, as well as the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR).

I have previous research experience at the University of Cincinnati’s Centre for Criminal Justice Reseach (CCJR) and Corrections Institute (UCCI), working on projects such as the Ohio Prison Study (PI: Latessa) and the Ohio Disproportionate Minority Contact Study (PI: Sullivan).
