Cynthia Najdowski is an Assistant Professor at the University at Albany. Her research explores how social psychological phenomena shape criminal justice interactions in ways that produce miscarriages of justice for minorities, women, and children. Her previous work has been recognized with several national grants and awards and published in interdisciplinary journals such as Law and Human Behavior and Psychology, Public Policy, and Law. She previously co-edited a book entitled Children as Victims, Witnesses, and Offenders: Psychological Science and the Law and has a volume forthcoming from Oxford University Press on contemporary challenges to the criminal jury system.

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
