Katrina Perry

Project Administrator

Katrina has been studying crime and injustice for the past six years. From her studies, she has developed a particular passion for racial justice and understanding the long-term impacts of systemic racism. Her passion is inspired by her experiences of coming from a mixed racial and ethnic background. As a recent graduate student with a master’s in Criminal Justice from Bridgewater State University, she has diverse research experience addressing racial disparities in the criminal justice system. During her graduate program, she enjoyed assisting professors in the department with qualitative projects that involved race and policing. While working at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, a state economic development agency dedicated to accelerating clean energy and environmental justice, she focused on advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

In her current role as Project Administrator, she performs numerous administrative duties, assists with research projects, and overall brings a sense of organization to the office. Katrina plans to earn a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice to strengthen her qualitative research skills and become a professor focusing on addressing racial inequity throughout US institutions. When she is not working, she volunteers for Societal Justice Interventions, a newly founded Criminal Justice organization that works to reduce incarceration and recidivism by addressing root causes in society. She also enjoys traveling, learning about new cultures, and spending most of her summers on the Cape.
