2008 Ph.D Graduate
Assistant Professor, Arizona State University
“What I enjoyed and appreciated the most about the FSU criminology PhD program was being able to work with professors on research projects and publications. I worked with faculty on social ecology and prisoner reentry research projects. I was also helped and encouraged by professors to develop my own research ideas into potential publications, such as my ongoing collaboration with a professor on a corporate crime paper. When working with faculty, I was constantly challenged and inspired to be a good researcher. It was absolutely a rewarding experience.”
