Public Policy, Program Evaluation, Criminal Justice Reform, Prisoner Reentry, Education
BioI recently received my PhD in public policy from the University of Southern California. My doctoral research consisted of evaluations of programs intended to assist marginalized populations, particularly in the areas of prisoner reentry and education. I enjoy reading, tending to my succulents, and volunteering with organizations involved with assisting immigrants and refugees.
There's no place like home
This project would consist of examining housing restrictions placed on the formerly incarcerated once they're released from custody. The student would then analyze these policies as well as the resulting consequences using a selection of evaluation tools, such as cost-benefit analysis and criteria matrices. Policy recommendations would then be made based on this analysis.
