Professor of Sociology & Criminal Justice, University of Delaware

I am a Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware. My research focuses on juvenile justice with interests in punishment and policing of youth in schools, courts, and correctional facilities, as well as inequality among juveniles. My recent book, The Real School Safety Problem: The long-term consequences of harsh school punishment, looks at the harms that come from contemporary school disciplinary policies. Prior books include Homeroom Security: School discipline in an age of fear, and Judging Juveniles: Prosecuting adolescents in adult and juvenile courts.
