Portrait of Jeffrey  Lin
Associate Professor; NIJ Graduate Research Fellow
University of Denver

Jeffrey Lin (2005 Fellow) is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at the University of Denver. His research focuses on crime and punishment in the United States, with specific emphases on juvenile justice, community correctional policies and media coverage. Jeffrey's work highlights the complex interactions between criminal justice institutions and offending behaviors, providing theoretical and empirical contexts that deepen our understanding of crime and punishment. The NIJ GRF award allowed me to focus completely on conducting my doctoral research on the New York City juvenile justice system, he says. In so doing, I was able to fully develop my skills as a correctional researcher. I would not be where I am today without the opportunity the GRF provided me. I am a better researcher and teacher because of it.
