Dr. Lin Liu
Lin Liu came to the University of Delaware to pursue master and doctoral studies in criminology in 2014. Before that, she obtained her B.A. and M.A. in law in China and worked as a line prosecutor in Beijing for seven years. Her passion for examining the causes of crime motivates her to enroll in a wide scope of theoretical and methodological courses at UD, and her prosecutorial experiences allow her to closely weave theories with practices to gain a strong understanding of the criminal justice system.
Lin Liu's research and expertise revolves around criminal justice actors' focal concerns, offending trajectories, the heterogeneous etiologies of crime, and quantitative methodologies. Lin Liu is joining the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida International University. During her graduate studies at UD, she has published 13 research articles in journals including Crime & Delinquency, Justice Quarterly, Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, Social Science Research, The Prison Journal, Marquette Law Review, Contemporary Justice Review, International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, Sociological Inquiry and International Criminal Justice Review.
