Erika Gebo, PhD, Research Associate

Professor Gebo believes in active scholarly engagement with the wider community. She does so through funded grant work on issues related to youth justice and assistance to community responding to youth violence, as well as through her work as a research associate for the Center for Crime and Justice Policy Research. Where possible, students are brought into research projects in order to engage more directly with the topic under study. Her current research focuses on how institutions, such as schools and community agencies, can inhibit or promote delinquent and gang behavior and the policy implications derived from that.
