In 2019, our faculty and students received five awards from the annual American Society of Criminology (ASC) Conference.
The ASC’s objectives are “to encourage the exchange, in a multidisciplinary setting, of those engaged in research, teaching, and practice so as to foster criminological scholarship, and to serve as a forum for the dissemination of criminological knowledge.”
As a top-tier research university, Northeastern brings together students and faculty from around the world to engage in cutting-edge research projects. The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northeastern prides itself on exploring a host of research topics, including but not limited to gun violence, gang violence, recidivism, human trafficking, victimization, racial profiling, and substance abuse. This year, the ASC chose to honor the research of our faculty and students with five individual awards:
- Dr. Anthony A. Braga, ASC Division of Experimental Criminology Outstanding Experimental Field Trial Award
- Dr. Anthony A. Braga, ASC Division of Policing Award
- Dr. Rod K. Brunson, Fellow of the ASC
- Dr. Megan Denver, ASC DEC Outstanding Young Experimental Criminologist Award
- Doctoral Student Alexis Yohros, ASC Division of Biopsychosocial Criminology Student Innovation Award
We would like to extend a big congratulations to Braga, Brunson, Denver, and Yohros for their outstanding achievements!
