My research focuses on the causes and consequences of criminal legal involvement for individuals and families. More specifically, my research agenda falls into three core areas. First, I study the intergenerational consequences of incarceration for children's health and education. Second, I study how criminal legal involvement acts as an important socio-structural determinant of health. Third, I study the intersection of race and disability in institutional settings, with an eye toward understanding the reciprocal relationship between social marginalization and institutionalization. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Fahs-Beck Fund for Research and Experimentation, and Policy Research Associates, among others, and has been featured in the American Journal of Public Health, Demography, Social Science and Medicine, and the Journal of Disability Policy Studies. I am currently funded by a K01 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
