My work focuses on juvenile crime and justice system sanctioning; juvenile reentry, aftercare and parole; community-based correctional program development, implementation and assessment; and drug involvement and crime among inner-city adolescents. My overall objective is to contribute to the state of knowledge regarding the efficacy of community-based approaches and reintegration strategies focused on adolescents involved in corrections.
