About

Christopher Dennison, PhD, is an assistant professor in the UB Department of Sociology. Most broadly, his research examines the association between intergenerational social mobility and crime and well-being across the life course. Other research interests include individual and “spillover” effects associated with involvement in the criminal justice system, how substance use affects college completion, and the relationship between problem gambling and criminal behavior. His most recent project examines how perceived experiences of unfair treatment by police are related to social-psychological and behavioral outcomes in adulthood.
