FSU criminology professor earns early career award

Turanovic will receive the DLC Early Career Award this November during the 2018 American Society of Criminology Convention in Atlanta.

Florida State University criminology professor Jillian Turanovic has been chosen to receive the 2018 Developmental & Life-Course Criminology Early Career Award.

This prestigious award recognizes an individual who, within four years after receiving a doctoral degree, has made a significant contribution to scholarly knowledge in developmental and life-course criminology.

“I am thankful and humbled to receive this recognition from the American Society of Criminology’s Division of Developmental and Life-Course Criminology,” said Turanovic. “It is a true honor to have my research recognized as making a meaningful contribution to the study of crime and victimization over the life course. “

Turanovic will receive the DLC Early Career Award this November during the 2018 American Society of Criminology Convention in Atlanta. She has been an assistant professor with the college since receiving her doctorate in criminology and criminal justice from Arizona State University.

“We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Turanovic among our faculty,” said Thomas Blomberg, dean of the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice. “In her short time here, Dr. Turanovic has demonstrated that not only is she a gifted and productive scholar, she is also a true leader in our field and will make a tremendous impact in criminology research throughout her career.”

Turanovic also serves as the director of the Crime Victim Research and Policy Institute, a branch of the college’s Center for Criminology and Public Policy Research.

Her research focuses on violent victimization and offending, correctional policy and the collateral consequences of incarceration. She is a Graduate Research Fellow and W.E.B. DuBois Fellow of the National Institute of Justice. Her publications have appeared in Criminology, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, Justice Quarterly and Journal of Pediatrics.
