Brian Kowalski is a social science research supervisor in the Bureau of Research and Evaluation at the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.  My broader research interests surround prison misconduct, recidivism, risk assessment, and police/citizen encounters.  Most of my agency work involves prison and jail operations-related research.  Some current projects include restrictive housing reform initiatives, prison violence, alternative methods of correctional program delivery, assessing the impact of prison contextual factors on inmate misconduct, and studying the relationship among static and dynamic risk scores, prison misconduct, and recidivism.
