Zach Rowan, a CCJS graduate student, was recently awarded the All-S.T.A.R. Fellowship from the UMD Graduate School for the 2015-16 academic year.
Zach is currently working on further understanding the role of the presence of others in explaining collective behavior. Dr. Jean McGloin and Zach have a forthcoming Criminology article that evaluates a threshold model of group crime. Zach and Dr. McGloin will continue to pursue their work on expanding the knowledge base on co-offending by identifying both key predictors and consequences of engaging in crime with others. Zach is additionally working on a project with Dr. Min Xie to assess the developmental nature of the victim-offender overlap. Zach is grateful for receiving the All-S.T.A.R Fellowship Award and intends on continuing to work towards producing research and being an engaged research assistant and member of the UMD community.
The Graduate School All-S.T.A.R. Fellowship is intended to honor graduate students who are both outstanding scholars and outstanding graduate assistants.
