About

Veronica Horowitz, PhD, is an assistant professor in the UB Department of Sociology. Her research focuses on American criminal punishment, with a subfocus on gender. Her current work uses a mixed-methods approach to investigate an underutilized form of mercy in US criminal justice, executive clemency. She is also involved in many other research projects including a multi-state study of monetary sanctions, dual debtors (persons with both criminal justice and child support debt), drug courts, domestic assault no contact orders, Evangelical attitudes towards prisoners and prison reform, and a new international project investigating the adoption of Norwegian principles in an American prison.
