Brandon holds an M.S. in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Northeastern University, and a B.S. in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Bridgewater State University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. Their areas of interest include victimization experiences in marginalized communities; mental health impacts of victimization; perceptions of crime and justice; queer criminology; and mixed methods research. They are currently collaborating with Dr. Kevin Drakulich to investigate how perceived racial, gender, and immigrant threat shape views of particular gun policies. Earlier in his doctoral studies, Brandon served as a summer research assistant for Drs. Anthony Braga and Gregory Zimmerman, working on an Arnold Ventures-funded project aiming to develop new intervention strategies for Massachusetts’ opioid epidemic. This assistantship provided Brandon with the opportunity to investigate several sub-fields of criminal justice and public health scholarship on the opioid crisis, and to synthesize study findings for presentation to the project’s working group. They are currently a teaching assistant for Criminal Justice Process.
