Bio | firstname.lastname@example.org
He is interested in studying law, crime and punishment in comparative perspective and, at the theoretical level, institutional analysis. His research highlights broader social structural contexts and dynamic social processes that undergird law, crime and punishment. The more fundamental question he pursues is how state institutions, state-society relations and politics shape the processes of social order and disorder.
His current projects focus on how (im)migration influences crime and punishment in the United States and China. His ongoing dissertation research examines why and how the bifurcation of immigration control in the United States—divided between punitive and integrative approaches—has developed over the past two decades.
