Obie’s interest in fatherhood dates back over 20 years when he first began investigating the effects of mass incarceration on family formation. His current research focuses on reentry and assisting fathers in adjusting to family life when they return home from prison. Additionally, Obie is working with fathers on ways to assist their children through non-financial means.
