Eric Sevigny, PhD, is associate professor of criminal justice and criminology at Georgia State University. He received his PhD in public and international affairs from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006. His research interests lie at the intersection of drugs, crime and public policy, particularly around issues of sentencing and incarceration, drug courts, the measurement of drug-related problems including cryptomarkets, and the public health, safety, and economic impacts of marijuana and other drug policy reforms. Dr. Sevigny’s research on drug problem measurement was previously supported by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, and he is currently conducting an NIDA-funded systematic review of the societal effects of changes in state marijuana laws. His work appears in an array of interdisciplinary journals, including Criminology and Public Policy, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, International Journal of Drug Policy, Drug and Alcohol Dependence, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, and Social Indicators Research.
