Talk on Scholars Day – Crime in Space and Time

I will be giving a talk tomorrow (10/21/17) at Scholars Day here at UT Dallas (where we get visits from prospective students). Here is the synopsis of my talk:

Synopsis: In this lecture, Dr. Andrew Wheeler will discuss his research on the spatial and temporal patterns of crime. He will discuss whether recent homicide trends are atypical given historical data and if you can predict which neighborhoods in Dallas have the most crime. He will also discuss what to expect from an education in criminology and the social sciences in general.

I will be at JSOM 2.106 from 11 to 11:45. Here is a bit of a sneak peak. (You will also get some Han’s Rosling style animated charts of homicide trends!)

I will also discuss some of my general pro-tips for incoming college students. I will expand that into a short post next week, but if you want that advice a few days ahead come to my talk!
