CJ Appleton

Graduate Research Assistant

I am a mixed methods scholar who is dedicated to research which will improve our criminal justice system. I am currently doing work on the role that identity verification plays in the probation officer (PO) - client relationship. I am also beginning to get into some solitary confinement work as well.
