Bio | Kanika Samuels-Wortley is an Assistant Professor at Carleton University in the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice.

She aims to advance critical race discourse in Canada through empirical mixed-methods approaches. Samuels-Wortley has collaborated on several provincial policy reports. Furthermore, she is quoted in numerous national news reports, podcasts, blogposts, and literary journals. Academic publications can be found in Race and Justice and the International Criminal Justice Review.
