Michael Wolfowicz

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Security and Crime Science, University College London and will be joining the Institute of Criminology, Faculty of Law, Hebrew University of Jerusalem as a faculty member in 2022.

My research primarily focuses on criminological applications to the study of radicalization, extremism, and terrorism, both theoretically and methodologically. My work to date has included the study of: terrorism and place (crime and place), recidivism, policing of terrorism, deterrence, echo chambers, social media surveillance, media-effects, and risk and protective factors. I primarily use quantitative methods, including meta-analysis, and have also applied agent-based modelling for evaluating counter-radicalization interventions. Beyond this, my general research interests include deviant cognitions, with a focus on attitudes, and media-effects, with a focus on the impacts of network structure characteristics.
