Undergraduate & Graduate Student Supervision
I will be able to take one new graduate student in the fall of 2021 who has an interest in sexual violence interventions and other topics related to male violence against women and girls. I only supervise graduate students coming in to our Applied Social Psychology program.
My current graduate students’ research focuses on the role of social media in sexual assault, transformations experienced by survivors following rape during war, pornography’s role in women’s sexual lives, and the role of self-silencing in negative outcomes experienced by young women who have experienced violence from their intimate partners.
Recent undergraduate students conducted research on control over the choice of pornography viewed in heterosexual relationships, mothers’ disclosures to daughters about their sexuality, and street harassment.
Graduate students are given the opportunity to become a member of the interdisciplinary Health Research Centre for the Study of Violence against Women
