Lily Hanrath currently works for the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA) in the capital of the United States. While at Robina, Lily was a Research Fellow and supported studies like the Mass Probation and Health, which identified disparities in access to health care systems for people on probation, and the Reducing Revocations Challenge, which currently aims to identify drivers of revocation and, ultimately, lower rates through informed policy and initiatives.
Lily received both her master’s degree and PhD from Pennsylvania State University. Her dissertation examines case progression on child abuse cases in law enforcement and Child Protective Service (CPS) organizations and how policies inform information-sharing and collaboration between the two systems. She has also worked on projects on the death penalty, sentencing, and bail outcomes. She is particularly interested in racial and gender disparity in criminal justice outcomes, actor decision-making, and the interplay between different divisions of the justice system. Her work can be found in Justice Quarterly, the Journal of Crime & Delinquency, and the American Society of Criminology’s Division on Corrections & Sentencing handbook series.
