In a year marked by a pandemic and increased social justice activism, the meaningful work of IUPUI researchers is more important than ever. That includes the efforts of the O’Neill School’s Jeremy Carter, whose research reaches into the criminal justice system.
Carter’s work spans helping local police de1partments evaluate and improve their own practices to working with national, state, and local officials to evaluate intelligence practices that combat terrorism, extremism, and organized crime. His research has landed him among the four recipients of the 2020 Research Frontiers Trailblazer Award, an annual recognition presented by the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.
“It is incredibly humbling and a great honor to be a recipient of this award,” Carter says. “As a social scientist, it is sometimes challenging to evidence the impact of our work on society. I believe IUPUI has done an incredible job of putting faculty in a position to engage in translational research and truly be community-engaged.”
