- Author BiographyLeslie W. Kennedy (PhD University of Toronto) is currently University Professor at Rutgers University. He teaches graduate-level courses at the School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) and is a core faculty member in the Division of Global Affairs at Rutgers. He was the Dean of SCJ from 1998 to 2007. Dr. Kennedy's current research in public security builds upon his previous work in event analysis, assessing the social contexts in which dangers in society are identified and deterred. He is the author or co-author of 19 books, and over 60 research articles and chapters. He has published in the major journal in criminology and criminal justice, including Criminology, Justice Quarterly, and Journal of Quantitative Criminology. Yasemin Gaziarifoglu has an M.A. in Forensic Science from Istanbul University Institute of Forensic Sciences and an M.A. in Criminal Justice from Rutgers University. Before assuming the Research Director position for Global Mapping at Rutgers Center for Public Security, she consulted the United Nations Global Pulse Initiative and helped develop ways of applying spatial risk analysis methods to forecast adverse regime changes. Yasemin is particularly interested in research dealing with matters of political instability. Recently, she co-authored the forthcoming Global Risk Terrain Modeling Manual: Theoretical Framework and Technical Steps for Worldwide Threat Analysis with Leslie W. Kennedy and Joel M. Caplan. Alexis R. Kennedy has completed her Masters in Economics from Rutgers University and is planning on pursuing her PhD in Economics in the fall of 2013. While pursuing her undergraduate degree in Economics at Rutgers, New Brunswick, Alexis wrote an honors thesis on the topic of how an economic system based on cooperatives and economic solidarity, is being used to promote prosperity in impoverished communities in Salvador, Brazil. She was awarded the Henry Rutgers Scholars award for her work and presented her thesis findings at the Rutgers University Aresty Symposium. In addition, Alexis founded the Rutgers University Campus Coalition Against Trafficking in which she worked to educate faculty, staff, and students about human trafficking in the United States and abroad.
