As professor of criminology at Georgia State University (GSU), my primary functions are teaching, research, and service.1 This page publishes (“makes public”) my work activities for annual review, 2023. I share this information to be more transparent and accountable; not for praise, but constructive criticism; not because I enjoy this (I don’t), but because the discomfort pushes me ahead. This is the second time publishing my annual activities, on the back of last year. Based on experience, I will continually try to improve these reports. Your feedback is welcome. Any corrections, additions, et cetera will be published on this page.
