Courses

Criminology and Research Methods.

I enjoy teaching, research, and public service, and strive to balance my activities among these three.  I regularly teach courses in Introduction to Criminal Justice, Juvenile Delinquency, and Gender, Crime, and Justice.  I also serve as the faculty supervisor for main campus SOCL and CRIM internships. 

Research

My research mostly involves analysis of the influence of circumstance on adolescent perception and behavior.  Specifically, I have conducted survey research in Medellin Colombia, and been a part of the Mobile Youth Survey in Mobile and Pritchard, Alabama.  Both studies evaluate the impact of a disadvantaged and often violent social environment on adolescent development and behavior.  Through collaborations with Dr. John Bolland, Dr. John Dizgun, and Dr. David Keeling, I have published articles in Deviant Behavior, Focus on Geography, Journal of Interpersonal Violence, and Youth and Society.  In addition to this theoretical work, I am also interested in evaluations of juvenile justice in KY.  My evaluation of a local restorative justice program was published in Contemporary Journal of Sociology and Anthropology and I am currently involved in analysis of Disproportionate Minority Contact in two KY communities with my colleague Dr. Donielle Lovell. 

Biography

PhD, University of Georgia - 2004.

I am involved with many public organizations throughout South Central Kentucky mostly in the area of child protection/wellbeing and juvenile corrections.  I find these opportunities for service allow me to make practical my theoretical understanding of society and crime obtained through research and teaching.
