Bergman Distinguished Service Professor, Director of the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab, Co-Director of the Education Lab, and Co-director of the National Bureau of Economic Research’s working group on the economics of crime. Jen's lecture,  "Non Specialis”, will answer the question: "If you had but one lecture to give, what would you say?”
