Dr Cassandra Cross is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Justice, Queensland University of Technology. Previously, she worked as a research/policy officer with the Queensland Police Service, where she commenced research on the topic of online fraud and was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2011. Since taking up her position at QUT in 2012, she has published in this area across several journals and continued her research into online fraud focusing across the prevention, victim support and policing aspects of this crime. She has received two highly competitive Criminology Research Grants, the first in 2013 to conduct the first Australian study into the reporting experiences and support needs of online fraud victims; and the second in 2015 to examine the restoration of identity for identity theft victims. She is co-author (with Professor Mark Button) of the book entitled “Cyber frauds, scams, and their victims”, which will be published by Routledge in 2017.
Dr Adrian Cherney, is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Science, at the University of Queensland. He holds a PhD in Criminology from the University of Melbourne. One major focus of his work is on institutional legitimacy and cooperation with authorities e.g. police and government. He is currently undertaking research on community cooperation in counter-terrorism and examining grass root efforts to counter violent extremism. He has secured both national and international competitive grants from the Australian Research Council, US Air Force and the Australian Institute of Criminology.
Sandra Walklate joined Liverpool University in January 2006 having held previous appointments at Manchester Metropolitan, Keele, Salford and Liverpool Polytechnic where she began her career in January 1975. Throughout her career she has maintained an interest in criminal victimisation that in more recent times has been extended both substantially and conceptually to include the impact of ‘new teorrism’ and war.
Jeff Ferrell is Visiting Professor of Criminology at the University of Kent and author of Crimes of Style, Tearing Down the Streets, and, with K. Hayward and J. Young, Cultural Criminology: An Invitation. Yvonne Jewkes is Research Professor in Criminology at the University of Brighton, and author of Media and Crime, co-editor of the Handbook on Prisons, and a founding editor (with Jeff Ferrell) of Crime, Media, Culture. Alison Young is the Francine V. McNiff Professor of Criminology at the University of Melbourne and author of Street Art World, Street Art, Public City, The Scene of Violence, and Imagining Crime.
Murray Lee is a Professor in Criminology at the Sydney Law School. He has been a visiting fellow at the London School of Economics and the University of Liverpool. He is the author of Inventing Fear of Crime: Criminology and the Politics of Anxiety, co-author of Policing and Media: Public Relations, Simulations and Communications, co-editor of Fear of Crime: Critical Voices in an Age of Anxiety, and editor of the scholarly journal Current Issues in Criminal Justice. Murray’s research focuses broadly on representations and perceptions of crime and how these lead to processes of criminalisation. This includes the increasing mediatization of crime and crime control and the development of new forms of media and communication that both create new crime risks and new anxieties, but also new forms of surveillance, control and governance. His current research interests involve fear of crime, police body-worn cameras, policing and the media, ‘sexting’ and young people and crime prevention. Murray currently teaches in the fields of policing, crime theory, fear and risk of victimisation, and environmental criminology and he is coordinator of the criminology masters program.
