Kelechi Wright is a doctoral student at the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare. Her research and teaching interests encompass criminal justice and immigration policy intersections, social welfare institutional and policy analysis and implementation science and qualitative and mixed methods research approaches. Her concentration on criminal justice is attributed to clinical experience serving formerly incarcerated individuals in co-occurring mental health outpatient services. Her hope is to generate greater research and practice methods where social work- based initiatives can influence criminal justice policy and practice. Her current focus is on immigrant disparities and inequalities in the criminal justice system.
