About the Presenter
Dr. Rossmo received his Masters degree from SFU and later became the first police officer to obtain a Doctorate in criminology. His dissertation research resulted in a new criminal investigative methodology called geographic profiling. In 1998, his analysis of cases of missing sex trade workers determined that a serial killer was at work, a conclusion ultimately vindicated by the arrest and conviction of Robert Pickton in 2002. Dr. Rossmo is currently based at Texas State University – San Marcos, where he holds the Endowed Chair in Criminology and is director of the Center for Geospatial Intelligence and Investigation.
