Dr. Christopher Whitt first met criminologist Dr. Amber Beckley over a decade ago when they were both members of the Black Graduate Students Association at the University of Maryland.
Today, Beckley is a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow. She splits her time between Duke University and Stockholm University in Sweden.
Beckley joins Margins to discuss her research, which deals with factors that cause people to commit crimes. She also talks about how her experience working and studying in Europe has influenced her perspective on crime in the United States. She also touches on her experiences as a woman of color working in the field of criminology.
