Portrait of Lori  Sexton
Assistant Professor; NIJ Graduate Research Fellow
University of Missouri, Kansas City

Lori Sexton (2010 Fellow) is an assistant professor in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, where she conducts research on punishment and social control. Her areas of emphasis are micro-level theories of punishment, the lived experience of incarceration and the unique challenges faced by transgender persons who are incarcerated. Being a GRF fellow has been an incredible experience one that began with my dissertation, but didn't end there, she says. The GRF program has provided me an opportunity to become embedded in a strong network of policy-minded scholars working on diverse topics, across methodological divides, at all stages of their careers.
