Dr. Lanterman came to the university after completing post-doctoral research fellowships at the University of South Florida and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. In Florida she facilitated the development of the National Police Research Platform with a consortium of policing researchers, and developed a data clearinghouse on environmental and white-collar crime.

Dr. Lanterman's current research focuses on the developmental trajectories of new police officers, the onset of maladaptive coping behaviors in police officers, and the variation in community corrections programs.
