Dr. Charlotte Gill has over ten years of experience in applied experimental and quasi-experimental research. She is currently a research partner on two Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BJA) grants to develop community-led approaches to tackling youth crime hot spots in Seattle, WA (with David Weisburd) and rural Kentucky, and three Smart Policing Initiative (BJA) grants: a randomized trial of collective efficacy policing in Brooklyn Park, MN (with David Weisburd); a randomized trial of coordinated police-mental health provider services in Roanoke County, VA (with Sue-Ming Yang); and a quasi-experiment examining RADAR (Risk Awareness, De-escalation And Referral), a community-based information sharing approach to improve police interactions with individuals with cognitive or behavioral health issues in Shoreline, WA (with the Police Foundation). Dr. Gill is the co-editor of the Campbell Collaboration Crime and Justice Group and a board member of the American Society of Criminology's Division of Experimental Criminology. She was recently awarded an Andrew Carnegie Fellowship (2017-19) and received the Academy of Experimental Criminology's Young Experimental Scholar award in 2012.
