Areas of Expertise: My research examines pathways into the criminal justice system and correctional responses, typically through a gendered or intersectional lens. I use both quantitative and qualitative methods, with an emphasis on mixed methods. Often, the needs of correctional clients are "out of sight, out of mind." By using qualitative methods in addition to typical quantitative evaluation methods, I am able to amplify the voices of those under supervision. The emphasis on gender and intersectionality helps ensure correctional practices are inclusive and effective across diverse subgroups.
