Faculty Profile: Meghan Rogers

Rogers PhotoMeghan Rogers joins us from Indiana University where she developed an interest in understanding cross-national variation in crime. Her work is largely devoted to why some nations have more violence, particularly homicide, than others and variations in measures of crime and their effectiveness. Meg’s most recent research seeks to understand if a holistic measure of inequality (not merely income inequality) can account for variation in homicide victimization across nations. She finds that more holistic measures of inequality are critical for moving theory and research forward as they offer a better understanding of the correlates of crime.

In her free time, Meghan enjoys reading, playing video games with her nephew, listening to music (her favorite band is Pink Floyd), and is an avid fan of Manchester United. 

We welcome Meg to the University of Iowa!
