Patricia Y. Warren, Associate Professor, completed her Ph.D. in 2005 from North Carolina State University in Sociology. Professor Warren’s first area of research focuses on race/ethnicity as an organizing principle that structures the way individuals are treated across varied criminal justice outcomes.  Her next area of research explores contextual characteristics and how they condition judicial decision-making. Professor Warren was recently received the 2011 McKnight Faculty Fellowship. She is also a member of the Racial Democracy, Crime and Justice Network sponsored by Ohio State University and the National Science Foundation.
