Join the QSIDE Research Labs

QSIDE is proud to announce the formation of our two research labs: JUSTFAIR State and SToPA. Please consider joining one or more of our labs to help drive the research agenda for justice!


JUdicial System Transparency for Fairness through Archived Inferred Records State research lab will take the federal judiciary sentencing disparities work to each of the states. Our lab will start with three states: Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Join us as we develop our methodology and model to ask and answer questions about sentencing behaviors at the state level, where the vast majority of sentencing decisions are made.

The Directors of the QSIDE JUSTFAIR State Lab are Drs. Lisa Lendway, Victor Piercey, and Daniel Alvey. The JUSTFAIR State Lab meets bi-weekly on Mondays from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET US.


The Small Town Policing Accountability Lab will focus on developing a toolkit for procuring, structuring, and analyzing policing data in small towns that lack the resources and systems to make their own data public. Join the lab to help bring visibility and accountability to policing in all of our communities.

The Directors of the SToPA Lab are Drs. Anna Haensch, Manuchehr Aminian, and Ariana Mendible. The SToPA Lab meets bi-weekly on Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. ET US.
