Recently, he has been apart of several large research centers examining the impacts of disasters on individual and community resilience and has published multiple articles on the significance of culture and networks for improving disaster recovery. In 2018, he began a collaborative research project with the Tucson Fire Department to examine how cultural practices within the fire service influence individual risk-taking and attitudes towards cancer awareness and reduction.
Dr. Cody Telep is an Associate Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at George Mason University. His research focuses on synthesizing research to assess what works in policing, collaborating with agencies to examine the impact of police practices on crime and perceptions of legitimacy, and examining receptivity to research and evidence-based practice in policing.
Dr. Mary-Ellen Brown is an assistant professor in the School of Social Work of the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University. Through varied experiences in Brown's academic and professional history, she has a robust background in research and evaluation, community health, positive youth development, and neighborhood planning and revitalization. Brown's scholarship is focused on the effects of poverty and violence as related to the resiliency, health and well-being of underserved communities, including Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and urban Native American populations. Brown's areas of specialized research include examining social determinants of health embedded in components of equitable community development, community health, and systems that perpetuate poverty and community stress and trauma. This line of investigation includes a special emphasis on developing valid and reliable measures for determining the effectiveness of community-engaged prevention and intervention efforts in promoting positive health outcomes to combat minority health inequities and related risk factors. In 2019, Brown was recognized with the Emerging Community Solutions Scholar award and also the Community Solutions Research Team award from the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions for her community-engaged action research.
