Marti Rovira

Non-Stipendiary Research Fellow in Sociology
Postdoctoral Officer, Department of Sociology

My research is directed at understanding the mechanisms of social stratification related to the criminal justice system. Currently, I collaborate with Professor David Kirk from Oxford University in conducting an audit study on the social stigma of former police officers in the US. My previous research focused on the effects of collateral consequences of convictions in the labour market. I have also published on other topics, such as the use of temporary release in Spanish prisons and the effects of sentences on re-offending related to intimate partner violence (IPV) crimes.

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Sociology in the University of Oxford and a Non-Stipendiary Fellow at Nuffield College. Previously, I received a PhD in Law (Criminology) from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). I hold the MSc "Sociology of Crime, Control and Globalisation" by the London School of Economics (LSE) and an MSc on Social Research Methods.

Research Interests: Criminology, Quantitative methods, Collateral Consequences of Convictions, Stigma.
