1484155315917Evan C. McCuish is an Assistant Professor in the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University and the Project
Director of the Incarcerated Serious and Violent Young Offender Sudy (ISVYOS), the largest and longest-running study on young offenders in Canada. He is also an associate of Corrado and Associates. He is a member of the American Society of Criminology and part of the ASC Division of Developmental and Life Course Criminology.

Dr. McCuish received his PhD in 2016. He received a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (2012-2015) Canadian Graduate Scholarship to help complete his research on the longitudinal offending patterns of serious and violent offenders.

Dr. McCuish is currently directing the fourth wave of data collection on the Incarcerated Serious and Violent Young Offender Study. This project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (2016-2020) and involves using a software tool to study approximately 1,400 participants that are being followed into various stages of adulthood. This research project is examining how adolescent risk and protective factors help inform continuity and change in offending patterns through adulthood. Part of this study involves the ongoing validation of the use of the Comprehensive Assessment of Psychopathic Personality for adolescents.

The main aim of this website is to provide greater transparency regarding research findings from the ISVYOS. Ethics agreements prevent the ISVYOS investigators from making data publicly available (though requests for access to data can be made through the Contact page).
