Research Interests

I conduct research in the general area of crime and deviance, law and society, and in the more specific areas of the individual and structural correlates of substance use and abuse, and the treatment of substance abuse. I am also interested in drug policies, criminal sentencing, and racial issues in the criminal justice system.
