Biography

Dr Donna Youngs is a Research Leader and Associate Director of the International Research Centre for Investigative Psychology (IRCIP). She has researched in the field of Investigative Psychology (IP) for the last ten years, helping shape its development. Her research addresses core IP issues, attempting to establish psychological correlates of offending styles, model criminal differentiation and establish the theoretical bases of offence specialisation. She has recently finalised books on Geographical Offender Profiling and has recently finished the first major text on Investigative Psychology (all with David Canter).
