Research Description

Dr. Kerrison's work extends from a legal epidemiological framework, wherein law and legal institutions condition structural determinants of health.  Specifically, through varied agency partnerships, her mixed-method research agenda investigates the impact that compounded structural disadvantage, concentrated poverty, and state supervision has on service delivery, substance misuse, violence and other health outcomes for individuals and communities marked by criminal legal system intervention.
