What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Social science
  • Social psychology

His primary areas of investigation include Social psychology, Criminology, Affect, Suicide prevention and Demography. His Social psychology research incorporates elements of Violent crime and Property crime. His studies in Criminology integrate themes in fields like Interpersonal communication, Situational ethics, Anger and Conflict management.

His Affect study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cultural criminology, Social environment, Criminal behavior and Social isolation. His work in the fields of Homicide overlaps with other areas such as Occupational safety and health, Gerontology and Rural environment. His Homicide study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Human factors and ergonomics.

His most cited work include:

  • ROUTINE ACTIVITIES AND CRIME: AN ANALYSIS OF VICTIMIZATION IN CANADA * (298 citations)
  • Risk Terrain Modeling: Brokering Criminological Theory and GIS Methods for Crime Forecasting (167 citations)
  • Risky lifestyles, routine activities, and the General Theory of Crime (165 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Leslie W. Kennedy spends much of his time researching Criminology, Social psychology, Computer security, Suicide prevention and Human factors and ergonomics. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Interpersonal communication and Criminology. The concepts of his Social psychology study are interwoven with issues in Developmental psychology and Social environment.

His Computer security research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Applied psychology, Terrain modeling, Environmental crime and Geographic information system. The Domestic violence research Leslie W. Kennedy does as part of his general Suicide prevention study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Demography, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. In general Human factors and ergonomics, his work in Homicide is often linked to Juvenile delinquency linking many areas of study.

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Leslie W. Kennedy focuses on Criminology, Terrain modeling, Crime prevention, Environmental planning and Data science. His work blends Criminology and Homicide studies together. His Terrain modeling study combines topics in areas such as Computer security, Environmental criminology, Management science and Vulnerability.

His Vulnerability research focuses on Index and how it relates to Crime analysis. His study in Crime prevention is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Intervention planning, Community engagement, Criminal behavior and Tracking.
