My name is Luzi Shi (石路子). I am a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Criminal Justice, SUNY-Albany. My research goal is to understand if our perceptions of crime are based on objectivity and reality, and to find out ways to correct crime-related biases and stereotypes. To this end, I analyze the social sources of crime perceptions and ways to change crime perceptions using survey data and experiments. I also study public opinion about crime and criminal justice in relation to gender, inequality, and China. To read more about my published works, please see my Research Gate page.
I am the recipient of the University at Albany Dissertation Fellowship Award, and a Doctoral Fellow of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. You are welcome to check out my CV here.
