CCJS Alumni Dr. Alex Piquero was featured on the CrimComm Convos series with Aili Malm which addressed topics about public criminology, mentoring, and the guild that is academia. CrimComm is a global network of criminologists who believe in making research informative, interesting, and accessible for everyone.

Dr. Piquero currently serves as the new Chair for the Sociology Department at the University of Miami.  His work focuses on many topics within the realm of criminology, from the relationship between immigration and crime to evidence-based crime prevention programs, police use of force, life-course patterns of criminal offending, as well as issues surrounding race and social issues like the NFL players’ protests during the U.S. national anthem, crime rates among NFL players, and most recently, changes in crime patterns during the COVID-19 pandemic.
