Rebecca’s Path

“When I made the decision to go back to school for my Ph.D., I specifically looked for programs that would merge my background in forensic psychology with my interest in engaging in criminal justice research and policy work. I ultimately made the decision to attend the doctoral program in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northeastern because of the faculty. There were a number of faculty conducting research I was drawn towards. I was primarily interested in working with Dr. Carlos Cuevas—his work, like mine, is multidisciplinary and focuses on the link between victimology and criminal justice.”
