Research Associate, Cardiff University
Daniel Grinnell has a background in geographic information systems (GIS) and environmental biology, with an MSc in Environmental Biology: Conservation & Resource Management.
He has since specialised in spatiotemporal characterization, network analysis, quantitative analysis, and management, of large-scale and big data.
He has utilized these research methods to investigate hotspots in criminal activity, the analysis and use of open source information for policing, and public perceptions of crime.
His research interests are in the analysis and characterization of criminal activity, as well as how residents perceive their own security and threat of crime, in geographical and online contexts.
