Professor James Ogloff AM recognised as University Distinguished Professor by Swinburne UniversityZoe Simmons
Earlier this week, Forensicare’s Executive Director of Research and Psychological Services, Professor James Ogloff AM, was recognised as a University Distinguished Professor by the Swinburne University of Technology.
The title of a University Distinguished Professor is the highest honour that can be awarded at Swinburne, recognising significant and exceptional contributions to an individual’s field over many years.
“I was delighted to learn about this appointment,” Professor Ogloff said.
“We are fortunate in Forensicare to have a culture of continuing clinical excellence, informed by research and evaluation. These have been values that underpinned our organisation since its inception.”
As the Executive Director of Research and Psychological Services, and the Director of the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science—a joint venture between Forensicare and Swinburne University of Technology— Professor Ogloff has well and truly dedicated his life to understanding offending behaviour, including what causes people to offend, and how we can minimise risk factors and manage offending behaviour into the future.
“My appointment as a University Distinguished Professor is also a reflection of the ongoing efforts made by the whole CFBS team, and the 32 Forensicare staff members who have various appointments with the CFBS and are involved in teaching or research,” Professor Ogloff added.
The CFBS also supports more than 160 students each semester learn about forensic mental health and behavioural science.
