Academic interests and affiliations
My research emphasizes the legal profession and public
interest law, social movements and activism, and crime victim services. I am
currently engaged in the study of law and social movements, with particular
emphasis on how cause lawyers negotiate their professional and activist
identities and frame movement strategies.
Other current projects include the study of campus sexual
assault, minority crime victims, and barriers to campus victim services.
Over the last five years, I have worked closely with the
Arizona Coalition for Victim Services to create, administer, and evaluate the
Arizona Victim Assistance Academy. This Academy is a 40-hour training of victim
advocates that aims to standardize and improve service delivery to the diverse
crime victims in Arizona, with particular emphasis on overcoming the geographic
and cultural barriers unique to this state.
Prior to my work with this project in Arizona, I gained
additional experience as co-principal investigator of the Pennsylvania Victim
Assistance Academy. Both projects were initially funded through the Department
of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime.
