Shun-Yung Kevin Wang (2009 Fellow) is an associate professor in the Department of Criminology at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, where he researches labor market participation and delinquent and criminal behaviors. He published a book, How Career-Ladder Jobs Increase Employment Prospects: Redeeming Lives from the Consequences of Youth Delinquency, in late 2013. "With NIJ GRF grants, I was able to consult experts of career/occupation counselors across the country to scientifically quantify the job quality in an aspect that suppresses criminality among youths," he says. "The fund enabled me to finish the dissertation with quality inputs from cross-discipline collaborations."
