I am interested in studying life-course criminology and community reentry, with a specific focus on how social supports and social institutions aid in desistance. I am also interested in the negative role societal stigmas may play in the desistance process. As a graduate assistant on the Women’s Prison Inmate Networks Study (WO-PINS), I conduct intensive interviews with incarcerated women and their children to better understand how children cope with having a parent incarcerated.
