Stacy Tzoumakis is a Lecturer in Criminology in the School of Social Sciences. She takes a developmental life-course perspective to understanding antisocial behaviour and offending. She has extensive research and project management experience in Canada and Australia, particularly in the implementation and analysis of longitudinal studies. Stacy completed an Infant Psychiatry Research Fellowship at British Columbia Children’s Hospital, where she conducted a randomized control home visitation study for children with behavioural problems. She is also involved in Vancouver Longitudinal Study on the Psychosocial Development of Children, an on-going longitudinal project, which aims to provide empirical evidence for policymakers about key early risk and protective factors of aggression and violence in at-risk children from the earliest developmental periods. She was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Psychiatry at UNSW Australia working on the New South Wales Child Development Study (NSW-CDS), a large population-based multi-agency, intergenerational data linkage study of 87,000 children and their parents. Stacy continues to be involved in the NSW-CDS, which utilises administrative record linkage from a variety of sources (i.e., criminal justice, health, welfare, and education) to identify vulnerability and protective factors for a wide range of health, educational, social, and wellbeing outcomes.
