Priscillia Hunt is an economist at the RAND Corporation and a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School. Her research interests include the economic implications of criminal justice policies, particularly at the police and court phases, and evaluation of policies focused on black markets and legal grey areas (counterfeits, non-medical use of prescription drugs, medical marijuana). Some of her current projects include an impact and cost evaluation of various pre-trial diversion programs across the U.S., estimating the effect of private police on crime, and an analysis to support the development of a Performance Management Information System (PMIS) that will identify police and corrections officers at risk for severe disciplinary action. Hunt received her Ph.D. in economics from the University of Warwick.
