Dr. Scheuerman's research centers on criminology, social psychology, and gender. Her research examines how social psychological processes impact behavior, especially crime or deviance. Her dissertation draws from the criminological and social psychological literatures to clarify how combinations of different types of injustice and the legitimacy of conventional or criminal coping behavior affect one's propensity for engaging in crime or deviance.
