Tony Cheng’s research focuses on the question: how do criminal justice experiences shape inequality in America?  Drawing on a variety of evidence on the NYPD, his book manuscript (“Policing and the Illusion of Public Input”) investigates why promising police-community reforms repeatedly fail to deliver.  His previous research has appeared in Social Problems, Law & Society Review, City & Community, and Politics & Society.  He holds a JD from NYU Law.
