Dr. Wyse’s research focuses on the intersections between the criminal justice system and the community, from community corrections to prisoner reentry. Within these systems and processes, she focuses particularly on the role of race, gender and the family. Her next project will examine prisoner reentry among aging ex-offenders and their families.
