Impulsivity and Neighborhood Context: Investigating the Person-Context Nexus

This study examines the impulsivity-offending relationship in different social contexts using the Project of Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN). Specifically, the dissertation will help determine the extent to which criminal behavior is the product of impulsivity, the collective efficacy of neighborhood, or (most likely and important) the combination of the two. It hopes to provide us with a better understanding of how individual and neighborhood characteristics contribute to, and interact in influencing offending behavior.
