Cesar J. Rebellon (Ph.D., Emory University, 2002) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, a Faculty Fellow with the Carsey Institute, and a Core Faculty Member in the Justice Studies Program. He was trained as social psychologist and his primary research interests involve family and peer influences on juvenile crime and delinquency.
His recent publications appear in Journal of Health and Social Behavior, European Journal of Criminology, Journal of Criminal Justice, Rural Sociology, Journal of Adolescence, and Law and Human Behavior. He is currently involved in two interdisciplinary data collection projects with faculty from multiple departments and colleges. One is funded by the National Science Foundation and involves the collection of survey data from middle-school and high-school students in southern New Hampshire. The other is funded by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and involves similar data collection from middle-school and high-school students from Coos County in New Hampshire’s North Country. Both projects have been following the same students over time and hope to follow them into their early adulthood to examine the predictors of both deviant behavior and positive outcomes.
At UNH, Professor Rebellon teaches courses concerning crime, terrorism, and quantitative research methods.
