My research focus will be on how the institution of federal prison can impact youth prisoners' physical health in a Canadian context. I will be using data collected from Professor Ricciardeli on Correctional Officers' views of youth prisoners, in combination with my own research that will look at youth's experience within the prison system and its affect on their health.
Research interest: Penitentiary/Prisons, youth, health, homelessness
