About Mr. Dixon Joseph

I am a forensic psychologist with a robust background in applying forensic psychological tools, refined through intensive training at the Directorate of Forensic Science in Gujarat. My expertise involves utilizing advanced methodologies to assess criminal behavior, contributing to a nuanced understanding of human cognition and motivation.

In addition to practical experience, I possess effective teaching abilities, emphasizing a practical approach with real-world case studies to foster a deep understanding of forensic psychology principles. As a committed scholar, I have demonstrated strong research capabilities, focusing on innovative approaches to comprehend criminal behavior and actively contributing to academic literature.

Furthermore, my professional philosophy revolves around a constant curiosity for learning, driving me to explore new technologies and methodologies for integration into forensic psychology. This commitment ensures my practice remains current, facilitating more effective analyses of criminal behavior. Intrigued by the potential of psychological principles in enhancing national security, I am eager to explore how these principles can contribute to this critical aspect of National Security.
