Dr. Colleen McLaughlin
McCue brings over 18 years of experience in advanced analytics and the development of actionable solutions
to complex information processing problems in the applied public safety and national security environment. Her areas
of expertise include the application of data mining and predictive analytics to the analysis of crime and intelligence data,
with particular emphasis on deployment strategies; surveillance detection; threat and
vulnerability assessment; geospatial predictive analytics; computational
modeling and visualization of human behavior; Human, Social, Culture and Behavior (HSCB) modeling and analysis; crisis and
conflict mapping; and the behavioral analysis of violent crime in support of anticipation and influence. Dr. McCue’s experience in the applied law
enforcement setting and pioneering work in operationally relevant and actionable analytical strategies has been used
to support a wide array of national security and public safety organizations, and she has been requested by name by local,
state, federal, and international clients for training and professional services in predictive analytics, crime analysis,
and crime and violence prevention. In this role, she brings more science and less fiction to the field of operational
security analytics, helping her clients gain the insight necessary to prevent crime and improve public safety outcomes.
Dr. McCue has published her research findings in journals and book chapters. She also has authored a book on the use of data
mining and predictive analytics entitled, Data Mining and Predictive Analysis: Intelligence Gathering and Crime Analysis (2nd Ed), and her biography has been included in, "Journeys to Data Mining: Experiences from 15 Renowned Researchers."
