IMG_3473_aI am a Ph.D. student at the School of Criminal Justice, University at Albany (SUNY), conducting research on prison visitation in New York State with my advisor Shawn Bushway. I am also collaborating with Prison Project Netherlands researchers on studies concerning continuity of social support and changes in patterns of offending across a period of incarceration.

My research interests span institutional and community corrections, as well as criminal justice policy more broadly, with a focus on improving outcomes, such as recidivism. Previously I conducted program and policy analysis for justice stakeholders at the Utah Criminal Justice Center, University of Utah.
