Kiminori Nakamura is the Research Director of the Maryland Data Analysis Center. He received his Ph.D. in Public Policy and Management from Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College in 2010. His research interests include corrections and reentry, criminal career, life-course criminology, collateral consequences of criminal justice interventions, and quantitative methods including social network analysis. His current research focuses on the issue of “redemption” for those with stale criminal-history records, which is when risk of recidivism declines to a level of appropriate benchmarks so that it is no longer necessary for an employer to be concerned about a criminal offense in a prospective employee's past.
