Doctoral Candidate

Lacey Moore is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Georgia. Her research utilizes a mixed methods approach to answer sociological questions in crime, deviance, punishment, education, and inequality with a specific focus on higher education for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals. Lacey's dissertation uses survey data and semi-structured interviews to explore the motivations and non-material resources leading to participation in higher education for formerly incarcerated individuals and to examine the mechanisms through which participation in higher education reduces recidivism and leads to other positive outcomes. Her work appears in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation and has been presented at the annual meetings of the American Society of Criminology and the Southern Sociological Society.
