Timothy G. Edgemon is an assistant professor of sociology and criminology at Auburn University. He received his PhD from the University of Georgia in 2020. Additionally, he completed a one-year National Institute of Justice Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Cincinnati Corrections Institute from 2020-2021.
Edgemon’s research examines the links between criminal justice contact and health disparities and also how macro-level structures can influence health outcomes at both the individual and population levels. In addition, he also does work examining how human trafficking-related violence affects the health of survivors. His current research projects include work that focus on human trafficking victimization and labor exploitation in Sub-Saharan Africa, how prison-level structures influence the mental health of incarcerated women, and how incarceration rates influence population-level mental health over time.
Edgemon’s work has been featured in several peer-reviewed outlets including Society & Mental Health, Social Science & Medicine, and Public Health Reports. He teaches courses in criminology, juvenile delinquency, sentencing and corrections, statistics, and research methods.
