    Biography

    ​Graciela Perez is a Criminology doctoral student in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice where she also earned her Master of Arts degree in Criminology. Her master’s thesis examined the generalizability of Hirschi’s self-control theory among youth across three countries with varying cannabis laws. At this time, Graciela also launched a project to evaluate an Inside Out Prison Exchange Program, which received external funding to conduct. Findings based on this project have been presented at the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences and the Eastern Sociological Society. In addition to being presented at conferences, she has one co-authored publication from this project and one currently under review, with yet a few manuscripts in progress. Most recently, she joined a NIJ-funded grant project as a research assistant to examine the nature and pattern of bias victimization among Latinx, with particular interests in understanding bias motivated crimes against immigrants in the United States. Work on this project also informs her dissertation, which takes a mixed-methods approach to understanding the lived experiences of Latinx immigrants and their interactions with immigration officers. Aside from her academic scholarship, Graciela is an advocate for immigrant rights and is involved in several community outreach programs such as Border Angeles, a non-profit organization tin pursuit of human rights, comprehensive immigration reform, and social justice at the U.S.-Mexican border.
