Welcome to my Website!

My name is Matthew M. Sweeney, and I earned my Doctor of Philosophy from the School of Criminology and Justice Studies and the Center for Terrorism and Security Studies at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

My research focuses on political violence, extremism, and policing.  I seek to discover new ways of interdicting terrorism and extremism through theory- and policy-relevant research applicable to a wide range of audiences.  I am particularly interested in studying the American Far Right, Homeland Security, and Policing.

This website will serve as a repository of my research projects, academic and scholarly publications, and samples of teaching syllabi.
