Tracy Fass McKnerney
While at Drexel, my research interests included violence risk assessment, juvenile delinquency, and sentencing policy. My goal was to pursue a career in academia. I am currently the Program Director of the Los Angeles and Irvine campuses of the California School of Forensic Studies at Alliant International University. I am also an Assistant Professor on the Los Angeles campus. I teach courses in psychopathology, statistics, and research methods, supervise student dissertations, and engage in various administrative activities. I also serve as a methodologist for a number of research projects on the Los Angeles campus. My current research activities focus on issues in juvenile sentencing policy, juvenile delinquency, violence risk assessment (specifically assessment instruments), program evaluation in correctional settings, and juvenile neuropsychology. In addition, I currently serve on the American Psychology-Law Society (AP-LS) Mentorship Committee and I have been involved in creating a mobile app for AP-LS. I previously served on the AP-LS Dissertation Awards Committee. I would be happy to speak with potential applicants to Drexel. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
