Sheena Yoon

PhD candidate, University of Utah

I am currently a Graduate Research Assistant at the National Institute of Justice (DOJ) as a federal contractor and a PhD candidate in Economics. I also serve as a Research Fellow at the Economic Evaluation Unit and a researcher for the Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice. Previously, I was a Junior Economist at the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva, Switzerland and an Information Designer at The World Bank. 

I received my MA in Economics from American University in D.C. with a concentration in feminist economics. My research interests and public policy work span across the fields of labor economics and relations, race and gender analysis (stratification economics), justice & equity, spatial methodologies, mapping & data visualization, political economy, and social protection. My current research focuses on the geospatial analysis of social and racial disparities of the correctional population in non-metropolitan areas.
