Gabrielle Salfati is the Director of the Investigative Psychology Research Unit (IPRU). She is part of the first group of people who emerged within the new field of Investigative Psychology, and was instrumental in its development as an international research field on the empirical analysis of violent criminal behaviour, in particular the advancement of the science of offender profiling and linking serial crimes. Her main areas of expertise relate to the methodology of research in offender profiling and linking serial crimes, specifically with a focus on interpersonal violence and victimization patterns in homicide and violent sexual crimes. This work is being developed within an international framework through collaboration with law enforcement agencies internationally. She has presented and published widely both nationally and internationally on her work, and provides training to law enforcement, crime analysts, clinicians, and other criminal justice professionals internationally.
