Loyola at a Glance

Loyola’s Dee Harper featured in Scientific American

July 11, 2008

The research of Loyola University New Orleans sociology and criminal justice professor Dee Wood Harper was recently featured in Scientific American magazine.

Harper, along with Stamos Karamouzis of Regis University, helped to develop a computer system that can predict which death row inmates are most likely to be executed with 92 percent accuracy. The researchers hope their findings will lead to a more fair appeals process for those seated on death row. Click here for the complete article.

Harper and Karamouzis’ research, which initially appeared in the International Journal of Law and Information Technology, was also recently featured in New Scientist magazine.
