Newman is a sociologist at Johns Hopkins and is dean of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. She is a co-author of Rampage: The Social Roots of School Shootings (Basic Books, February 2004). Based on her research, Newman can also discuss personality profiles that are common among mass shooters.
