Current Projects
I’m currently working on projects examining: 

  • How court actors repurpose pretrial risk assessments to compensate for structural failures in the criminal legal system
  • The double bind of conditional probability models in the pretrial risk context 
  • How the discretion of pretrial officers influences pretrial risk scores and detention decisions
