Mike HarrodBackground

I am an Assistant Professor here in the Department of Sociology. I earned my degree at the University of California, Riverside. My primary areas of interest lie in social psychology, criminology, and research methods. However, I am interested in a fairly wide array of sociological topics above and beyond these.
