    Assistant Professor, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown

    ​Dr. Kleinstuber graduated summa cum laude from Rowan University in December 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Law & Justice Studies, a minor in Mathematics, and an Honors concentration prior to enrolling in the University of Delaware, where he received his Master of Arts in Sociology in 2007 and his Doctor of Philosophy in Sociology in 2011.  He is a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, the sociology honor society, and currently serves as UPJ's faculty advisor to AKD.  His areas of specialization are criminological theory and law & society.  His research focuses on law & society, the death penalty, and genocide and other human rights abuses.  Dr. Kleinstuber's dissertation examined the role of America's culture of individualism on the mitigation process in Delaware capital cases through content analyses of trial transcripts, judicial sentencing opinions, and local media accounts and through interviews with 35 former capital jurors.  Part of his dissertation forms the crux of his book, Hegemonic Individualism and Subversive Stories in Capital Mitigation, which was released on Ashgate Publishing's Law, Justice, and Power series in May 2014. His research on capital jurors was also cited by the Delaware Supreme Court when it declared Delaware's existing capital sentencing statute unconstitutional in Rauf v. Delaware.  He is currently examining the role of victim impact evidence (VIE) in capital penalty trials.
