Dr. Lori Sexton is Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She has a Ph.D. in Criminology, Law and Society from the University of California, Irvine, and an M.A. in Criminology from the University of Pennsylvania. Her research focuses primarily on prisons and punishment, with a secondary focus on marginalized populations and intersectionality. She has worked on numerous studies of incarcerated populations, including two studies focusing specifically on transgender prisoners. Her work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Justice, and the Fletcher Jones Foundation.
