Shao-Chiu (Joe) Juan

Visiting Lecturer

Shao-Chiu (Joe) Juan is Visiting Lecturer in Criminology, Law and Justice at the University of Illinois, Chicago. He has a Medical Doctor Degree (MD) from Tzu Chi University, Taiwan, a Master of Public Health (MPH) Degree from Harvard School of Public Health, and a Master of Arts (MA) Degree from the University at Albany, SUNY

His research centers on the interface between criminal justice and public health, with a special emphasis on youth violence, substance abuse, and developmental criminology. A national award issued by Taiwan's Ministry of Education allowed him to study youth violence (David Hemenway), social determinants of health (Tamara Awerbuch and Richard Levins), geospatial analysis (Shiguo Jiang), substance abuse (Kamiar Alaei), and juvenile justice (Heather Washington and Megan Kurlychek). In 2014 he was invited to Atlanta's Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a guest researcher to assess how youth violence can be prevented at a national level. From 2016 through 2017, he was working at New York State Division of Criminal Justice (DCJS) to assess the recidivism rates of crime and violence. 
Since 2016, his articles have appeared in scientific peer-reviewed journals (AIDS, Public Health Reviews, Hepatitis Monthly, Journal of Gang Research, Cogent Social Sciences, Journal of Interpersonal Violence). With a keen eye for detail and theoretical emphases in research, he is conversant with high-level statistical modeling, data management, and programming using STATA, SPSS, R, and SAS.
