Bryce Westlake, an SFU Doctoral Criminology student, has been selected as one of SSHRC's Top 25 finalists in the Storytellers competition. SSHRC asked postsecondary students from across the country to demonstrate how a SSHRC-funded research project at their institution is making a difference in the lives of Canadians.

Bryce's video on "Monitoring the Development of Online Child Exploitation Networks" in 3 minutes explores the structure of child exploitation networks and how to target them. 

Bryce completed his BA in Psychology/Sociology at the University of British Columbia in 2007. He finished his Master's Thesis: Analyzing online child exploitation networks: An examination of severity and connectivity at SFU in 2011.  He is currently working on his PhD dissertation: The evolution of the criminal career of child exploitation websites: Community, survival, and offending patterns. Currently he is also the Project Manager at the International Cybercrime Research Centre  at SFU.
