Laura Frizzell is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the Ohio State University. My research addresses broad issues in crime and the criminal justice system, particularly differences of race, gender, and sexuality in offending, incarceration, and policing. Some of my current projects include exploring the impacts of policing and related media coverage on Black women, investigating the media portrayals of racialized masculinities and mental health after mass shooting events, and analyzing distinct pathways towards prescription drug misuse during sex based on gender and sexuality. Feel free to look at my vita or email me for more information. Sadé L. Lindsay's research interests explore the ways gender and race shape experiences of incarceration, interactions with police, and responses to deviance. I allow my research questions to guide my research method of choice, leading me to use both quantitative and qualitative methods in my work. Scott Duxbury's research can be categorized in three streams: computational criminology, punishment and conflict, and network science. Broadly, I am interested in social control, including domination, resistance, and how social control affects group processes. My work attempts to (1) illuminate how social control affects complex systems dynamics and to (2) uncover how collective sentiments result in systems of group subjugation and intergroup conflict. These interests have brought my empirical research to diverse areas, including criminal groups' use of technology to subvert surveillance, media coverage of mass violence, adolescent friendship networks, and aggregate trends in incarceration and police use of force. My methodological work seeks to develop greater precision in studying complex systems. I have developed diagnostic measures for statistical network models and centrality measures for bipartite networks.
