Rachel Marie Corsello

Graduate Assistant

Professional Summary

I am a graduate student at the University of Cincinnati, and in August 2021 graduated with a Master's degree in Criminal Justice and a graduate certificate in the Analysis of Criminal Behavior. As of fall 2021, I began the process of obtaining my PhD in Criminal Justice, concentratinng on criminology and crime prevention. My research interests thus far include victimology and juvenile justice practices. In my undergrad, I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Biology, as well as minors in Justice, Law, and Public Policy and Environmental Studies.

I aim to have a career at a nonprofit university as an Associate Professor and researcher. I have had several influencial mentors throughout my college experience, and hope to one day provide that same guidance and instruction as they once offered me.
