Michaela Soyer

Michaela Soyer received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Chicago. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Justice Center for Research at Penn State University.

Her current work focuses on delinquency, incarceration, recidivism and social theory. She has also conducted research about resistance in oppressive regimes.

Currently Michaela is engaged in data collection for several collaborative mixed method projects about inmate networks and their significance for reenetry and recidivism. Her second book will be based on in-depth interviews with 30 juveniles adjudicated as adults and their families. Relying on this interview data she seeks to understand the young men's pathways into crime, the negative turning points they experienced as teenagers as well as the role childhood trauma and extreme deprivation played in their criminal career.
