Dr. Evan McCuish has a strong background in research collaboration
Criminology’s newest faculty recruit, Assistant Professor Evan McCuish, has a strong background in research collaboration. When McCuish was an undergraduate Criminology major, he got his start inputting data for Professor Raymond Corrado’s Incarcerated Serious and Violent Young Offenders Study. He took on progressively more challenging roles in the study throughout his MA and PhD. His PhD dissertation, “Bringing Psychopathy into Research on Offending Trajectories: Understanding the Construct’s Role as a Barrier to Desistance” utilized the knowledge he gained from his work with Corrado.
McCuish will now expand on this research as co-principal investigator of the Incarcerated Serious and Violent Young Offenders Study. He is also collaborating on other research projects within the School of Criminology, working with Corrado, Patrick Lussier from the University of Laval, and Jeff Mathesius, a PhD student, examining early behavioural problems of toddlers and infants.
