Roland Neil, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow at the Penn Injury Science Center. His research focuses on crime and criminal justice outcomes, especially patterns of police behavior, by examining their neighborhood, life course, and developmental origins. One of his ongoing projects examines the extent to which specific neighborhoods drive racial and ethnic disparities in policing, and why. The other, using data on multiple birth cohorts studied over several decades, examines various ways in which social contexts impact trajectories of crime and criminal justice involvement across individuals’ lives. He holds a PhD in Sociology from Harvard University.
