Academic interests and affiliations

My primary research interests center around the study of the causes of wrongful conviction. This has manifested in: a) scholarly research addressing wrongful and unlawful conviction from an international human rights and transnational perspective; and b) research on the Criminal Cases Review Commission in the UK.

In addition, I am the Director of the Arizona Innocence Project (AIP), an actual innocence project that investigates cases where actual innocence is alleged.
