I am a sociologically informed feminist criminologist. I specialize in research relating to legal or regulatory responses to problems, particularly those that disproportionately affect women. In my research, I explore ways to provide alternative forms of justice, broadly defined.
I have done work about:
· Restorative justice
· Specialized courts
· Sexual and domestic violence
· “Rape culture”
· Criminal Harassment
· Domestic violence policies and intervention programs
· The politics of crime control
· Program evaluation
My work is oriented toward policy development and changing systems or organizations.
I do empirical research. I dabble in diverse methods, qualitative and quantitative, and am increasingly moving toward narrative and participatory approaches.
