Research Interests: Hello! My name is Alina Robello, and I am a first-year graduate student in the Sociology department. I graduated with two Bachelor of Arts degrees, one in Psychology and one in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies (CCJS) from Sonoma State University in 2019. I also minored in Political Science. My areas of specialization here at UCR are Criminology and Social Psychology. My research interests include but are not limited to gender blindness in programming for youth in residential treatment centers, socialization of children who were institutionalized at an early age, and community responses to natural disasters. I am particularly interested in responses to wildfires because I am a survivor of the Tubbs fire. An interesting fact about me is that I was born in Bucharest, Romania!
