Timothy C. Brown received his Ph.D. in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology from Louisiana State University in 2010. His research seeks to examine the role individual, social, and environmental inequalities have in criminality, victimization, and navigating the criminal justice system. More specifically he has examined how marginalized or minority groups and their communities are impacted by crime and the criminal justice system. This research has had two primary foci. The first has focused on the examination of the experiences of marginalized or minority groups who are involved in and/or impacted by crime and the criminal justice system. The second is on how contextual level inequality influences the variation in the nature and prevalence of violence across place and social / racial groups. He is currently working on research focusing on rural gangs in the Southern region of the United States, and the unique experiences of female law enforcement officers. He currently serves on the editorial boards for Deviant Behavior and American Journal of Criminal Justice. Dr. Brown has published his work in Policing Quarterly, Journal of Interpersonal Violence, Journal of Criminal Justice, Deviant Behavior, Homicide Studies, American Journal of Criminal Justice, and The Social Science Journal, among others. His research and teaching interests include gangs and criminal organizations, Communities (urban and rural) and crime, social deviance, and criminological theory.
