Kendra Clark

Senior Research Associate

I recently earned my Ph.D. from University of Colorado Boulder where my research was funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. During graduate school I worked as a research assistant for numerous projects including the LoneStar Project—an NIJ funded study examining gangs and reentry experiences. I enjoy all aspects of research; however, data collection and analysis are where I thrive the most.
