Assistant Professor

Bradley J. Bartos is an Assistant Professor in the School of Government and Public Policy.  He received his Ph.D. in Criminology, Law & Society at the University of California, Irvine in June 2020, and a Master of Arts in Social Ecology, also from UC-Irvine, in 2016. He is an author of Design and Analysis of Time Series Experiments (Oxford University Press, 2017) and Interrupted Time Series Analysis (Oxford University Press, 2019). His research has been published in a number of social science journals, including Prevention Science, Experimental Criminology, Criminology and Public Policy, and Archives of Suicide Research. Dr. Bartos’s research leverages natural variation in criminal justice and social policies and employs quasi-experimental time-series designs to evaluate the impact of these policy changes on crime, injury, and mortality trends. Through his work with the Irvine Simulation Modeling Lab, Dr. Bartos developed population projection models using discrete-event simulation for California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Los Angeles county Sheriff's Department, and California Department of State Hospitals.
