Statement of Professional Engagement:

Dr. Malm’s research interests center on the intersection between policing and social policy. She is interested in the assessment and evaluation of policing strategies and intelligence; integrating empirical evidence and theory to inform social policy; and the effect that policing has on individuals, communities, and society. In this capacity, her research requires an ability to blend theory with advanced methodologies. Her methodological toolkit includes a variety of qualitative and quantitative methodologies. These include spatial analysis, social network analysis, simulation modeling, textual analysis using qualitative software, interviewing, and large-scale community surveying. She has also used activity-based costing models borrowed from economics to assess the changing costs of policing.
