ICJIA’s Research and Analysis Unit is led by Dr. Megan Alderden and staffed by a team of researchers who provide a wide range of research, data analysis, and coordination of outside experts to examine critical criminal justice topics and promote research that informs policy, supports evidence-based practices, and guides decision-making. They also provide technical assistance to programs supported by ICJIA-administered grant funds as those programs refine program objectives, develop data collection tools, and assess program performance.
