Corrections & Sentencing

The primary focus of her research is the study of corrections, recidivism, and public policy. Most of her research is developed from a life-course framework, with the goal of understanding how incarceration, and contact with the criminal justice system overall, affects long-term behaviors, social relationships, and housing. Her work has been funded by Arnold Ventures, the MacArthur Safety and Justice Challenge, and the National Institute or Justice.
