About Me

I am Sadé L. Lindsay, an Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Sociology in the Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy at Cornell University. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from The Ohio State University. My research interests lie at the intersection of criminal justice, punishment, racial inequality, and public policy. Specifically, I examine racial inequality and the criminalization of deviance, gendered incarceration experiences, men's prison reentry, and drug policy and use. My scholarship has received numerous awards and been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Justice, the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy, the American Society of Criminology, the Center for Engaged Scholarship, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems, among other organizations.
