About the teaching fellow (plus Mindich Teaching Fellow and Digital Scholarship Support Teaching Fellow):

Nicolette Bardele ( is a doctoral student in sociology at Harvard University. She is primarily interested in inequality, social policy, and incarceration and criminal justice, and she uses both qualitative and quantitative methods in her research. Nicolette's current work focuses on inequality within community corrections and the role that formal conditions imposed during probation play in whether individuals successfully complete their sentences. Since 2016, she has also been a member of the research team for the Pennsylvania Solitary Study (PASS), a mixed-methods interview study of the experiences, health, and well-being of men incarcerated in solitary confinement. In addition to her research and teaching, Nicolette is a sociology concentration advisor for undergraduates in three of Harvard's Houses. Prior to graduate school, she earned a BA in sociology and statistics from the University of Notre Dame.
