Danielle Wallace received her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Chicago in 2009. She has co-authored publications on neighborhood effects, demography, and health, which appear in The American Sociological Review and The American Journal of Public Health. Her research interests begin in criminology, and then branch into the overlap between criminology and urban sociology, neighborhood studies, and research methods. Currently, she is working on the Fast Track Abatement Program Evaluation Project—a photo documentation and systematic social evaluation project that constructs the time line surrounding disorder, home, and neighborhood deterioration as abandoned buildings become slated for demolition. Additionally, she is exploring the relationship between neighborhood resources and recidivism in Chicago.
