New Faculty Member in Criminology

In support of our new Criminology major, the Department of Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology has hired a second criminologist, Angela Kaufman. Ms. Kaufman will be receiving her Ph.D. in Sociology from Bowling Green State University in Ohio this year. As a criminologist, much of her research focuses on child maltreatment and intimate partner violence, particularly concerning risk factors for victimization and the intergenerational transmission of violence. Her current work examines how child maltreatment experiences, parent-child relationship quality, and romantic relationship contexts influence individuals’ risk for intimate partner violence throughout adolescence and young adulthood. Other projects that Kaufman is working on include analyzing racial-ethnic differences in pretrial bail among federal drug defendants, and identifying school-level effects on individuals’ risk for teen dating violence. Kaufman has also received a B.S. in Journalism, with a focus in Public Relations, as well as an M.A. in Sociology at Bowling Green State University. Prior to beginning her graduate work in 2009, she worked as a marketing intern for the American Lung Association of the Midland States, and a development intern for the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center, both located in Ohio.
