Research Interests

Monique’s PhD project investigates Canada’s recently introduced wireless emergency alert network, and specifically the inclusion of Amber Alerts as part of this mandatory notification system.

Her research focuses on public responses to crime and crime control initiatives, and the expression of these on social media and other online platforms. Monique is particularly interested in how moral ideals may inform and be used to justify people’s views on crime and criminal justice.
