I am currently a PhD student in the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies and a Junior Fellow at Massey College at the University of Toronto. Before coming to the University of Toronto, I worked as a Research Associate for the Department of Criminal Justice, University of Winnipeg. My research interests lie in the areas of critical policing studies, corruption/white-collar crime, and freedom of information law (and issues of access more broadly). Working under the supervision of Professor Matthew Light, my dissertation research examines issues of government and corporate corruption in Canada using a mixed-methods, comparative approach. My previous work has appeared in a number of peer-reviewed, academic journals, including Social Forces, British Journal of Criminology, Policing & Society, International Political Sociology, and Canadian Journal of Criminology & Criminal Justice. Outside of academia, I am an avid rock climber and mountain biker. You can follow me on twitter at @alexlusco.
