This experience sparked Iman’s passion for crisis planning and response which she has carried into her work at BGI.

During her time at UCI, Iman completed an award-winning thesis highlighting the importance of location as it relations to the motivators of inmate-on-staff assaults. Her research identified problem-areas within individual correctional facilities in a southwestern state and provided recommendations for training, protocol, and response improvements.
