Student Profile(s)


I was fortunate to be able to spend some time at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York as part of my degree. It was a fantastic experience, I worked with different academics and interviewed experienced narcotics officers. It challenged me to think differently and changed my approach to my dissertation.
