Dr Andrew Wilczak received his MA in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Eastern Michigan University in 2006 and his PhD in Sociology from Bowling Green State University in 2011, with a focus in criminology and social psychology. His research interests include examining how violence and exposure to violence influence adolescent development, the history of violence and public policy, and the role of criminological theory in understanding revolutionary action. He is the host of two podcasts focusing on public scholarship: Untenured Tracks, a casual interview series with untenured faculty and graduate students about their research and pedagogy, and Strength Check, a collaborative project with Drs. Joan Antunes, Mike Dando, and Shauna Lesseur, which focuses on narrative storytelling as a teaching tool.

Dr Troy Payne has been at the University of Alaska Anchorage since 2010. Before that, he earned an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati. His primary interests are translational research, data visualization, crime prevention and policing — but he’s also done work in risk assessment and a handful of other areas over the years. Most recently, as Associate Director of the Alaska Justice Information Center, he has been focused on translational research, on finding ways to communicate his findings to both policy members and the public.
