Wim Bernasco

A psychologist by training and PhD in sociology, I have studied spatial aspects of crime since about 2000, when I joined the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement (NSCR) .

Since January 2013 am also a professor at the Department of Spatial Economics in the School of Business and Economics of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where I hold a chair 'Spatial analysis of crime'.

Here is my single-page CV. You will not find me on the new social media, but I usually reply when you send me an email .

I do have pages at ORCID and at ResearcherID (where you can find out how often my work has been cited, and when and by whom) and at Publons (which documents my reviewing activities)
