Professor Rebellon is a faculty member of the Master in Public Policy and a Faculty Fellow of the Carsey School of Public Policy. He received his doctorate from the Department of Sociology at Emory University in 2002. His primary research interests focus on family and peer correlates of juvenile crime and delinquency, with a particular emphasis on the manner in which delinquency may yield reinforcing social rewards among adolescents. His recent research appears in such journals as Social Psychology QuarterlyDeviant BehaviorJournal of Youth and AdolescenceRural SociologyJournal of Interpersonal ViolenceCriminology, and Journal of Quantitative Criminology. In collaboration with several other Carsey scholars, Professor Rebellon is currently tracking two cohorts of young adults from New Hampshire's Coos County to examine changes in their perceptions of Coos County, their plans for temporary or permanent out-migration from Coos County, and their thoughts about pursuing a long-term future in Coos County.
