Kelly T. Sutherland

Ph.D. Candidate in Applied Psychology and Prevention Science; Data Manager at the Center for Open Science, UMass Lowell

I am a doctoral candidate and psycho-legal researcher. I investigate the connection between America's plea bargaining addiction and a criminal justice system fraught with wrongful convictions and mass incarcerations. Currently, I am the Graduate Research Assistant on the National Science Foundation CAREER grant-funded research project: A System of Pleas, under the direction of Dr. Miko M. Wilford.
