My research focuses on the intersection of criminal justice, violence, and public health. I am focused on researching two main areas. First, I research the health consequences of incarceration. This work entails understanding how incarceration serves as a driver of health disparities for individuals, families, and communities. Second, I research the causes and consequences of violence, focusing on firearm violence. My goal is for this research to help create programs and policies that contribute to a more just criminal-legal system and safer communities for individuals to live, learn, work, and play.
