As someone with research experience in policing and professional experience in the courts, it was difficult for me to limit my interests to any particular area of criminology. Mason's Criminology, Law and Society doctoral program encouraged me to pursue both, providing opportunities to collaborate with a diverse group of professors. This has allowed me to focus on unique topics related to the intersection of policing and courts and has led to a recent publication examining the impact of police body-worn cameras on court outcomes.
