Assistant Professor; NIJ Graduate Research Fellow

Naomi Sugie (2013 Fellow) is an assistant professor in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at the University of California, Irvine, where she studies the collateral consequences of incarceration for those incarcerated and their families. Naomi's work also examines the social science implications of new technologies for data collection and criminal justice research, and her GRF award supported a project that used smartphones to contribute a detailed study of prisoner re-entry. She credits the program with helping her complete this novel and resource-intensive data collection effort. The NIJ GRF program is unique as one of the few sources of salary support for doctoral students, she says. "As a fellow, I was able to focus my time entirely on completing my dissertation. I also appreciate how my grant officer reached out with helpful information and advice throughout the year."
