Erin Kerrison among UC Berkeley Recipients of $2 Million Grant to Build Criminal Justice Big Data Tools

September 7, 2021

A group of UC Berkeley researchers — including Assistant Professor Erin Kerrison — recently won a 3-year, $2 million National Science Foundation grant to improve the useability of big criminal justice datasets for public defenders and others.

The new Effective Programming, Interaction, and Computation with Data (EPIC) Lab will create computing tools to help defenders, investigators and paralegals without coding expertise more easily research police misconduct, judicial decision-making and related issues for their cases.
