Student Supervision

I supervise one undergraduate thesis student (per year), graduate students across the MA and PhD levels, and a Post-Doctoral Fellow (PDF).

See Banting Fellowships (pdf) for funding opportunity for high achieving new graduates.

Undergraduate & Graduate Student Supervision

I will not be taking new students for entry in fall of 2022.  I only supervise graduate students coming in to our Applied Social Psychology program.

My current graduate students’ research focuses on attitudes toward and prevention of sexual violence, how internalized sexual objectification and sexualization affect perceptions of agency, violence, and coercion in women’s lives, and creation of positive femme identities in a hostile world.

Recent undergraduate students conducted research on facilitators of resiliency following sexual assault, the impact of parental sexual socialization and comprehensive sexuality education on sexual attitudes and self-efficacy, sexting compliance, and preferences for sex- or gender-based attributes in sexual partners.

Graduate students are given the opportunity to become a member of the interdisciplinary Health Research Centre for the Study of Violence against Women
