Meredith Rossner

Professor of Criminology, Australian National University

I am a criminologist who does empirical research on courts and other justice processes. I focuses on the role of emotions, rituals, the built environment, and technology in justice practices. This includes work on the emotional dynamics of restorative justice conferences between victims and offenders for serious crime, research on the micro-level dynamics of jury deliberation, the role of courtroom design on access to justice and the presumption of innocence, and the use of video technology in courts.
