Welcome to my Website!

My name is Matthew M. Sweeney and I am a Doctoral Candidate at the Center for Terrorism and Security Studies and in the School of Criminology and Justice 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.
