Dr. Choi designed and oversees the Master of Criminal Justice concentration and certificate in Cybercrime Investigation & Cybersecurity, offered jointly by the Department of Applied Social Sciences and Department of Computer Science. Choi’s research focuses on the intersection of human behavior and technology—and how criminal justice can respond effectively to the challenges of cybercrime. In 2008, he proposed his Cyber-Routine Activities Theory, which has become a predominant theory on cybercrime and computer crime victimization. Dr. Choi’s work has appeared in numerous criminal justice journals. In 2009, the Korean Institute of Criminology, in cooperation with United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), invited Choi to facilitate the UN’s Virtual Forum against Cybercrime (VFAC) as an instructor. His books include Cybercriminology and Digital Investigation (LFB Scholarly Publishing, October 2015) and Risk Factors in Computer Crime (LFB Scholarly Publishing, August 2010).
