Full Biography

Miriam Northcutt Bohmert received her Ph.D. from Michigan State University’s School of Criminal Justice in 2014 where her dissertation research was funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Justice, and the Association for Doctoral Programs in Criminology and Criminal Justice. In part due to her background in sociology and social psychology, her work focuses on race, class, gender and other social justice issues related to prisons and community supervision. Her current research project argues that transportation deprivation is an unexamined need of individuals on community supervision.
