More broadly, Suzanne is interested in the interrelationship between social structure and individuals’ attitudes and behavior. Suzanne has experience teaching sex crimes, statistics, research methods, and introduction to criminal justice. As a queer and feminist scholar, Suzanne also is committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity in criminal justice curriculum, research, and practices.
