View Professor Zaykowski's Curriculum Vitae
Research interests include contextualizing victimization and the multiple ways in which people respond to violence – aggressive behavior, contacting the police and informal help-seeking, and examining the ways in which communities develop mechanisms of social control. Ongoing projects include examining the victim-offender overlap from youth to adulthood and its impact on help-seeking. Dr. Zaykowski is also currently the evaluator for the SAMHSA funded “The MASS-MISSION Program to End Chronic Homelessness” project.
