Completing research with Dr. Ulmer has been a great opportunity. Not only have I had the chance to earn some money, but I have also gained real-life experience in the Criminology field. Being able to work with a faculty member and gain insight into a new subject matter- death penalty research- has been invaluable. From my work with Dr. Ulmer, I have learned how to navigate court dockets and code data from it. I am also excited to be able to attend the American Society for Criminology conference in November and present research that I have done with Dr. Ulmer’s help. Having the opportunity to attend a conference with faculty and students across the country will aid me as I consider a career in research.
