Dr. Nina Barbieri

- Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice

Dr. Barbieri's research interests are in the area of adolescents, particularly focusing on at-risk youth and school related experiences. My teaching interests include juvenile justice, crime and delinquency, criminological theory, and criminal justice policies. I think it is important to understand the connectivity between criminological theory and criminal justice policies and how the both affect each other.
