Senior Research Associate
Camila Gripp is a Senior Research Associate at the Justice Collaboratory of the Yale Law School. In addition to a PhD in Political Science, she holds Masters degrees in Liberal Studies and Political Science from The New School, as well as a Master’s in Economics from the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. Camila’s interdisciplinary approach to criminal justice draws from previous experience at MDRC, the Center for Court Innovation, and a visiting scholar position at the Institute for Social and Political Studies of the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (IESP-UERJ). In 2019, Camila received the Hannah Arendt Award in Politics for her doctoral dissertation, which involved an ethnographic study of an attempt to implement community policing in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, where she spent one year embedded in a military police unit. In her current position, Camila is dedicated to the study of criminal justice outcomes in the United States, with a particularly focus on law enforcement agencies, their practices, training, organizational culture and public legitimacy.
