Greetings! I am Sadé L. Lindsay, a PhD Candidate in the Sociology Department at The Ohio State University and affiliate of the Criminal Justice Research Center. I am also a 2018 recipient of the American Society of Criminology’s Ruth D. Peterson Fellowship. As a Columbus, Ohio native, I have an extreme love for all things Buckeyes. I received my B.A. in Criminology and M.A. in Sociology at The Ohio State University in 2015 and 2017, respectively.

My research interests broadly examine how gender and race shape experiences of incarceration, interactions with police, and cultural responses to deviance. I allow my research questions to guide my research method of choice, leading me to use quantitative and qualitative methods in my work.

If you would like to learn more about me and/or my current and previous research projects, please explore my website or contact me at
