Welcome to the personal website of Roman Gressier, a multilingual independent journalist covering criminal justice and immigration in the South Bronx.

In tandem with his reporting, Roman is currently pursuing an M.A. in Journalism in the Spanish-language program at CUNY's Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism.

Prior to attending Newmark, he contributed to The Crime Report, a digital publication based in New York covering criminal justice and related issues.

As an undergraduate at CUNY's John Jay College, he worked as an applied research fellow with the Vera Institute of Justice, with a focus on policing policy in the United States. At Vera, he contributed to the first four volumes of the Emerging Issues in American Policing Digest.
