Dr. Eren's research focuses on white-collar crime, crime and media, and social movements on criminal justice issues. Her book, Bernie Madoff and the Crisis: The Public Trial of Capitalism, examined the way in which the high-profile Ponzi scheme became a vehicle through which the public could discuss the broader economic problems which led to the Financial Crisis of 2008. She has been featured in several documentaries about the Madoff case and has been published in the New York Times on the subject.
She currently is in contract to write two books. The first, Reform-Nation, with Stanford University Press, looks at criminal justice reform over the past 15 years as a social movement with unique and sometimes unlikely stakeholders. The second book, The Impact of Supreme Court Cases on U.S. Institutions, with co-author Dr. Robert Costello, to be published with Routledge, provides a socio-legal introduction for students in the social sciences.
Dr. Eren typically teaches Senior Seminar in Criminal Justice, and Criminology.
