Professor of Criminology


Pamela Wilcox Headshot


My research and teaching interests lie in communities and crime, environmental criminology (crime opportunity), victimization, school crime, and crime prevention. I study the causes, consequences, and prevention of crime and victimization in neighborhood and school contexts. In particular, I focus on how individual- and place-level risk factors for experiencing crime or victimization can be enhanced or mitigated by neighborhood and/or school characteristics.
