Amanda Osuna's research qualitatively focuses on using vulnerability and trust frameworks to understand victimization experiences and experiences of institutional betrayal. She also focuses on how vulnerabilities might be compounded because of one’s identities and intersectionality which may lead to an increased potential for harm.
Osuna's recent studies have been published in Youth Justice: An International Journal; International Journal of Migration, Health, and Social Care; Crime & Delinquency; and the Journal of Social Issues.
She is currently the managing editor for the Journal of Trust Research. She is also a mentoring coordinator for the Division of Feminist Criminology at the American Society of Criminology.
