  • About

    Jonah Douglas-Siegel entered the Joint Doctoral Program in Social Work and Sociology in 2008. His main research interests are in crime and incarceration, efficient operation of the criminal justice system, prisoner reentry, neighborhood well-being, and policy development and implementation. Jonah's dissertation is titled "Released Yet Still Surveilled: The Role of Parole Violations and Institutional Sanctions in Prisoner Reentry" and is an examination of the predictors and implications of recidivism among parolees. Following the completion of his dissertation (expected graduation: August 2014), he hopes to pursue an applied research position that allows him to contribute to the reform of the criminal justice system.
