Dr Mike Sutton is a notable alumnus, has a first degree in law and PhD in criminology from the University of Central Lancashire. He was for 14 years a senior criminologist at the British Home Office, Queen Anne's Gate. In 2001, he became Reader in Criminology at Nottingham Trent University, where he founded the 'Centre for Study and Reduction of Bias, Prejudice and Hate Crime'. Mike is engaged in research, supervising doctoral students, teaches High Tech Crime, Crime Reduction and Community Safety, and Crime and Prejudice. He is co-owner and joint founder of the Internet Journal of Criminology. In 1999, Mike won the British Journal of Criminology Prize for his published research on hackers entitled NetCrime>> More Change in the Organisation of Thieving. Mike is the originator of the Market Reduction Approach to Theft, and has published extensively on the role of stolen goods markets as a crime generator. In 2010 he famously busted the myth that a misplaced decimal point in the 19th century recorded iron level of spinach led to it being recommended as a good source of iron. That research led him to originate the Supermyth concept and BigData-IDD research method to find books and other relevant publications. Using that new method, led him, in 2014, to bust the 155-year-old myth started by Darwin that no naturalist known to him had read Patrick Matthew's prior publication of the full hypothesis of macro evolution by natural selection. Mike originally discovered seven naturalists had in fact cited Matthew's book before 1858. Darwin knew four and three of those four played major roles at the epicentre of influence on Darwin's pre-1858 work on natural selection. The full details of Mike's original research into the story of Matthew, Darwin and Wallace and the discovery of natural selection are in his book Nullius in Verba: Darwin's Greatest Secret.
