Dr. Jean McGloin Lectures at 2012 Institute on Systems Science and Health (ISSH)
Dr. Jean McGloin was a guest lecturer for the 2012 Institute on Systems Science and Health (ISSH) on June 10-15, 2012 at Washington University in St. Louis.
As a guest lecturer for the social network analysis track, Dr. McGloin discussed her prior research on street gangs and co-offending, which adopted a social network approach. Her presentation also covered current research projects about (1) the layered influence of social networks on adolescent (deviant) behavior and (2) the role of social networks in the process of offender re-entry.
The 2012 Institute on Systems Science and Health (ISSH) is funded by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research and National Institutes of Health and provides investigators with a thorough introduction to selected systems science methodologies that may be used to study behavioral and social dimensions of public health. Participants in the week-long Institute focused on one of three methodologies: agent-based modeling, system dynamics modeling, or network analysis.
