CCJS Doctoral Candidate, Miranda Galvin, was offered a fellowship with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The Mirzayan Fellowship introduces people early in their careers to the dynamic relationship between science and policy by working with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for twelve weeks. Fellows are assigned to one of the Academies' Committees and are actively engaged in current projects in varying capacities. Miranda will be working in the Committee on Law and Justice (CLAJ), which advises on policy issues related to crime and the criminal justice system. In addition to working with their assigned units, Fellows collaborate across units to develop presentations on current science policy issues facing the country and also attend briefings, workshops, and meet people working in the science policy field.
