Re-settling in Hamburg and getting started into a new research job took eat up too much of my time to let me post here for a while. But the news are good: I have a half-year full position in a research project at Hamburg University’s Institute for Social Scientific Criminological Research. The project on which I am working has been designed by Jan Wehrheim and Susanne Krasmann, and it is funded by the Thyssen Foundation. The name of the project is Geodata, Policing and Urban Development. I hope that I’ll have the time to post some more info on the project itself and what we are doing. Until then I am happy to be working with great new colleagues, living close to friends and family, and spending the summer in Hamburg.
