WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

Jennifer Huang Bouey, MBBS, MPH, PhD

  • Principal Investigator

 

Katie Hail-Jares, PhD

  • Project Manager

Katie Hail-Jares received her Ph.D. in Justice, Law & Criminology with an emphasis on Qualitative Research at American University. Her research centers on the intersection of criminal, or otherwise socially deviant, behavior, criminalization, and public health outcomes. Much of her work involves collaborations with incarcerated communities, sex workers, and harm reduction organizations. Her dissertation was a mixed-methods examination of how incarcerated men draw upon their in-prison and out-of-prison social networks during the reentry process and how administrators incorporate evidence of such support into their release decisions. Her research has appeared in PLOS-One, Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependency, Iowa Law Review, and Studies in Law, Politics & Society. She is currently serving as the lead editor of Not Just the Alleys: Expanded Perspective on Street-Based Sex Work (Temple University Press, forthcoming in 2016), an edited volume that brings researchers, policymakers, and people impacted by street-based sex work together in conversation. Dr. Hail-Jares believes in active engagement with her community collaborators. Prior to pursuing her doctorate, Katie spent seven years working in Iowa prisons. While an undergraduate she co-founded the Liberal Arts in Prison Program at Grinnell College. After graduation, she co-founded Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s Skylark Project to provide legal and social services and support to incarcerated survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Currently, she is a team leader at HIPS and a national board member of the Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP-USA).
