Professor, Department of Psychology

I am an applied social and feminist psychologist. My research has largely explored the social determinants of women’s health, especially violence against women. Currently I am a co-investigator on a randomized clinical trial examining the effectiveness of a sexual assault resistance program for first year university women. Among other projects, my students and I are also examining resilience after violence, the experience of sexual coercion, and housing programs for women who have experienced intimate partner violence.
