PhD, MA Students and Faculty are Invited

What can I do with a PhD outside of the academy?

This seminar will be incredibly interesting, especially for those of you who may be considering careers outside of the academy.  Dr. Valerio Bacak and three of our very own current or former graduate students will be here to talk about their varied pathways and experiences navigating careers in government, research think tanks, and private industry.  Bring your questions!

Our speakers include these amazing folks:

Dr. Ntasha Bhardwaj (Rutgers Ph.D., 2022) is currently working as a United Nations Women Technical Consultant to the Ministry of Women and Child Development (Government of India). Her work is multi-disciplinary, drawing on perspectives from Criminology, Criminal Justice, Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, and Law. As a researcher, she explores the impact of gender and gender inequality on crime and the fear of crime in South Asia.

Dr. Walter Campbell (Rutgers Ph.D., 2016) is currently an associate and scientist in Abt Associates’ Division of Health and Environment (Boston, Mass). His research has focused on community supervision and post-incarceration outcomes, including evaluations of home and field contacts, supervision risk scores, and the impact of distance between prison and an inmate’s former residence.

Christine Neudecker (MA; Rutgers Ph.D., in progress) is currently a Vice President and Analytic Methodologist of Global Intelligence at JP Morgan Chase & Co (NYC, NY). Her research involves the application of geographic information systems (GIS) to a variety of topics, most notably counterterrorism. She has capitalized on her methodological and theoretical toolkit to translate that expertise into a senior role in private industry.

Dr. Valerio Bacak, who needs no introduction 🙂, will be joining and facilitating, as will Dr. Elizabeth Griffiths.
