The researchers, who apply mathematics to interpret and make sense of police crime data, noted that physical-distancing measures are likely to significantly alter and disrupt the conditions in which crime typically occurs. The study’s co-authors include Andrea Bertozzi, UCLA professor of mathematics and director of Applied Mathematics … and George Tita, professor of Criminology, Law and Society, and Urban Planning and Public Policy at UC Irvine.
