Biography: 
Sarah Tosh is a doctoral candidate in Sociology at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her research focuses on the intersections between drug policy, criminal justice policy, and immigration policy. Her dissertation “Aggravated Felonies, Deportation, and the Legal Construction of the ‘Criminal Alien,’” explores the “aggravated felony,” an oft-overlooked legal category which provides the basis for the removal of thousands of immigrants each year, very often due to previous drug convictions. Her co-authored chapter with, David Brotherton, “The Sociology of Vindictiveness and the Deportable Alien,” appears in the recently published volume, Immigration Policy in the Age of Punishment (eds. David Brotherton and Phil Kretsedemas, 2018, Columbia University Press).
