Julia Carrano is the supervisor for the Preventing Wrongful Convictions Project, a federally funded, multi-year research study. The project employs a distinctive social science research methodology, matched case comparison, that will allow the research team to identify factors that statistically predict wrongful convictions.
Ms. Carrano brings a background in both law and social science to the project. Prior to attending law school, she studied anthropology and archaeology and conducted fieldwork in the Sudan. Ms. Carrano remains interested in the intersection of legal and anthropological methodologies and theories.
