About the Author

I am a recent graduate with a B.A. in Psychology and Social Behavior and a B.A. in Criminology, Law & Society. I will be starting my Ph.D. studies in the fall of 2017, my research interests are in domestic violence (DV) and its effects on those exposed to DV. I’m also interested in alternatives to punitive measures and incarceration, such as restorative justice and rehabilitation measures. Finally, I’m interested in the impact of ethnic, racial, and other biases, prejudices, and discrimination that minorities face in the justice system.
