• Dr. Leban joined the UAB faculty in 2018. Her research investigates drug/substance use, victimization, and deviant outcomes, with a particular focus on gender and criminological theory. She uses both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to address these issues.

    Dr. Leban is currently working on several projects related to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and victimization, which assess how early experiences of adversity and trauma are related to deviant and negative life outcomes. She is especially interested in factors that foster resilience in the face of harmful experiences.
