Link, Nathan

Nate Link conducts policy-relevant research in the areas of mental health and crime, corrections/reentry, and crime control strategies. He was on the team that evaluated the Philadelphia Focused Deterrence initiative, which showed a significant reduction in shootings in the targeted area of South Philly (findings can be found in the Journal of Experimental Criminology). He has further researched the various types of “levers” that law enforcement (probation/parole/police) employed as part of this effort in Philadelphia
