My research focuses on policy issues in prisons, jails, and community corrections settings. Specifically, my work seeks to uncover how experiences in in the corrections system influences future criminal behavior. I have studied prison punishment practices, correctional classification and security, parole supervision policies, and mandatory minimum sentencing laws. I work closely with local and state corrections agencies to evaluate their current practices and find areas for improvement.
