After studying at Michigan State University, I came to the University of Texas at Arlington in Fall 2010. My training is in Juvenile Justice, focusing on the recidivism among juveniles released from diversion programs or incarceration. In addition to research on the juvenile justice, I have worked on a number of research projects, and have collaborated on several research publications: “An exploratory study of the characteristics of men known to commit prisoner-on-prisoner sexual violence”, which is a study of the male inmates who are victimized by other men in prison, and “Workplace problems and the methods police officers use to cope with those problems”, which examines workplace problems and the methods police officers use to cope with those problems.

My research focus at UTA is the development interdisciplinary approach to understand role of adult/juvenile corrections, community, and family as an important component of effective intervention.
