Kendra Bradner was the Project Coordinator for the Executive Session on Community Corrections with the Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management (PCJ) at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS). The Executive Session is a working group of academics and practitioners which explores the role of community corrections and communities in the interest of justice and public safety. Her work touches on probation, parole, reentry, and community-based programs for justice-involved individuals. Kendra's research areas of interest include system design and measurement, the footprint of criminal justice systems, public safety, human development, social networks, racial disparities, and legitimacy.

While Kendra continues with PCJ as a Research Fellow, as of October 2017 Kendra is full time at Columbia University and can be reached there.
