He describes research projects designed to prevent wrongful convictions and improve accuracy in the criminal justice system, and work on sentencing, reentry and collateral consequences. He also discusses planned collaborations between researchers and criminal justice actors in North Carolina to improve outcomes in pre-trial decision-making, plea bargaining, and probation.
