Kimberly Kras earned her Ph.D. in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Missouri-St. Louis where she researched the experience of reentry for individuals convicted of sexual offenses and other issues related to offender reentry including housing, employment, and social support. Prior to coming to UMass Lowell, Kras was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at George Mason University where she worked on projects pertaining to the implementation of evidence-based practices in community corrections agencies, as well as developing curricula translating research into practice for corrections practitioners. Kras' research focuses on the offender experience of reentry in a life course framework and how these experiences can inform evidence-based practices in probation and parole.
