Welcome to Inside Industry with IREO, the premier podcast series about working with industry to fund research. This podcast is brought to you by the Innovation and Research Engagement Office (IREO) team located at Washington State University.
Inside Industry with IREO brings a special episode with WSU faculty David Makin and Lois James. Listen to how their research is being used to improve policing and fight racism.
David Makin is the co-founder and Director of the Complex Social Interactions Lab and an associate professor in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. His work examines the relationship between technology and criminal justice practice, with an emphasis on police interactions.
Lois James is an assistant professor in the Washington State University (WSU) College of Nursing. Dr. James’s simulation-based research on the impact of bias on police decision making has significantly advanced what is known about how suspect race and ethnicity influences police officers during critical encounters with the public.
