Short Bio

David N. Khey has focused his research on a few areas in criminology, criminal justice, and forensic science.  In particular, he is currently investigating campus crime and deviance; drug policy, control, and toxicology; and the changing evidentiary power of forensic science technologies. Born and raised in South Florida during the Cocaine Cowboy regime, drug policy and enforcement quickly piqued his interest.  In this topical area, Dr. Khey has presented research on drug and alcohol use/abuse and provided policy analysis to local and state officials in Florida.  A highlight of this work includes an invitation to address the Governor's Office Drug Policy Advisory Council in 2007.  Dr. Khey is an active member of the American Society of Criminology, American Academy of Forensic Sciences, and Southern Criminal Justice Association.

Outside of criminology and forensic science research, Dr. Khey has excelled in developing and administrating online learning environments and takes a special interest in Internet media, learning, and digital crime/forensics.  He has almost a decade of experience in academic technology and brings this expertise to Loyola University New Orleans.
