Jessica Gillooly is a PhD candidate in Sociology and Public Policy and a trainee of Social Demography at the Population Studies Center, where she studies the criminal justice system. Her research uses ethnographic methods to examine how interactions between citizens who call 9-1-1 for police services and call-takers and dispatchers at Public Safety Answering Points shape the mobilization of police officers. Before coming to Michigan, she conducted program evaluation research at Mathematica Policy Research on federal health and human service programs. She holds an MPP from the Harris School of Public Policy at The University of Chicago and a B.A. from Brown University in Public Policy.
