A warm congratulations to John Leverso who recently accepted a position as an Assistant Professor at Whitman College, in Walla Walla, WA. John's research focuses on urban street gangs, and pays particular attention to how ritualized but not face-to-face interactions, including shared mixed-tapes and online posts, impact group solidarity. John's advising team at UW has included Callie Burt, Sarah Quinn, Jerry Herting, Bob Crutchfield, and Ross Matsueda. At Whitman, John will teach in the areas of criminology and research methods. Congratulations! We are proud of you, John!
