Williams invited to National Academy of Sciences symposium
Brian Williams (‘91, ‘95), an associate professor of public administration and policy at SPIA, has been invited to attend the National Academy of Sciences’ 24th Annual Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium this fall. The Academy’s premiere activity for distinguished young scientists, this symposium explores innovative research ideas from a wide variety of fields, enabling participants to develop new networks across disciplines. A committee of NAS members selects attendees from among young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science, including recipients of major national fellowships and awards and who have been identified as future leaders in science.
Williams’ primary research interests include: Race, Policing, and the Co-production of Public Safety and Public Order. He is a Certified Ethics Trainer by the Department of Justice/Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, a faculty member with the Illinois Law Enforcement Executive Institute, an Onsite Assessor with the Western Regional Institute for Community Oriented Public Safety at Washington State University, and serves in an adjunct capacity as a trainer and instructor with the Regional Community Policing Institute at Eastern Kentucky University.
