Research Interests

Corey is currently involved in multiple projects examining the role of interpersonal relationships in structuring how people experience incarceration and community reentry. In particular, he is interested in understanding how soon-to-be-released prisoners form expectations for reconnecting with friends and family, the extent to which these expectations become actualized following prison release, and how this process impacts reintegration and recidivism.
