Among her current research projects are a study of jurors in capital cases (funded by the National Science Foundation), an oral history project focusing on the anti-death penalty movement in America, and research on the influence of slavery on modern criminal justice practices. Dr. Vandiver is the graduate coordinator for the department. She teaches the graduate research methods course and a variety of elective courses.
