Dr. Chandrika Kelso

Chandrika Kelso is a professor in the Dept. of Professional Studies, National University, La Jolla, CA. The fields of Criminal Justice or Alternative Dispute Resolution cannot exist in a vacuum, and are interlaced to and with other fields and disciplines, thus her reason for her expansive research interests. Therefore, her research interests include topics related to the fields of criminal justice, law, mediation, negotiation, security, and corrections. Given that she teaches in CJA, ADR, Homeland Security & Emergency Management programs, her scholarship agenda casts a wider net to gain current knowledge whether it is about how well our adult learners are faring, to how they may deal with conflict, to terrorism and its global impact, to race and justice in the community, to also include the incarcerated.
