About the Speaker


Terence P. Thornberry, Ph.D., is Distinguished University Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland. In 1995 he was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Criminology and in 2008 he was the recipient of that society’s Edwin H. Sutherland Award for lifetime contributions to the discipline. Dr. Thornberry is the recipient of numerous other awards including the ASC’s Michael J. Hindelang Book Award for Gangs and Delinquency in Developmental Perspective.

Professor Thornberry's research interests focus on understanding the development of delinquency and crime over the life course, the impact of gang membership on human development, the causes and consequences of child maltreatment, and intergenerational continuity in antisocial behavior. He is the Principal Investigator of the Rochester Youth Development Study, a three-generation panel study begun in 1986 to examine the causes and consequences of delinquency and other forms of antisocial behaviors.
