Danieli Evans Peterman

Danieli Evans Peterman researches and writes about the causes and consequences of social exclusion, alienation, and inequality. She aims to understand the types of practices and policies that alienate people from their community and government, and thereby fuel antisocial behavior. Examples include certain methods of school discipline, various aspects of the criminal justice system, widespread social and structural bias based on race and poverty. Danieli's goal is to identify and develop interventions that facilitate participation and engagement, and thereby encourage pro-social behavior and social/economic mobility.

Danieli is currently a Research Scholar in Law at the Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School. Her writing has appeared in a number of legal journals, including The Virginia Law Review, Stanford Law and Policy Review Online, The University of Pennsylvania Law ReviewThe Georgetown Law Journal Online, and the University of Cincinnati Law Review. Danieli has taught courses on the law of policing and police-community relations at the law school and undergraduate level.

Danieli holds a B.A. from the University of Miami and a J.D. from Yale Law School (2012), where she was a student director of the Supreme Court Advocacy Clinic. After law school, Danieli served as a law clerk to the Honorable Diane P. Wood of the Seventh Circuit and the Honorable Harry T. Edwards of the D.C. Circuit. She also practiced litigation at Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel, and then served as a fellow in constitutional studies at the National Constitution Center.
