Dr. Logan’s research interests focus on how various inmate groups adapt to incarceration—such as the prison experience of white-collar inmates, inmates with military backgrounds, inmates with histories of mental health disorder, and inmates from different racial or ethnic backgrounds—with respect to both negative and positive prison outcomes. He is also interested in the theoretical frameworks and quantitative methodologies that have been used to empirically assess the prison experience. These include hierarchical linear modeling and logistic regression analyses, as well as importation and deprivation models of prison adjustment.
