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.
