Dylan B. Jackson is a trained life-course and developmental criminologist whose research primarily focuses on 1) fostering the health and well-being of children and youth in the face of violence, adversity, and exposure to the criminal legal system, and 2) promoting child and adolescent health as a means of developmental crime prevention. His work examines myriad exposures to the criminal legal system (e.g., policing, incarceration) and family and neighborhood violence as potent determinants of child and adolescent health. He also investigates the implications of diminished health, often within the broader context of social inequities, for violent and problem behaviors, with a primary focus on health and development during the early life course. Dr. Jackson's work is integrative, bridging empirical and theoretical developments from multiple social and health science fields, including public health, criminology, sociology, social work, and psychology. His work has been published in a diverse set of peer-reviewed journals, including Health Affairs, Journal of Adolescent Health, The Journal of Pediatrics, Academic Pediatrics, Social Science & Medicine, Psychology of Violence, Prevention Science, Preventive Medicine, Youth & Society, and American Journal of Community Psychology.
