Fourteen Not Forgotten: Montreal Massacre Memorial

Graduate Students

I am actively seeking new graduate students who have an interest in sexual violence interventions and other topics related to male violence against women and girls. I currently supervise three graduate students whose research focuses on consent and coercion in the lives of heterosexual, lesbian, and asexual women, the role of social media in sexual assault, and rape during war. I prioritize working with students who have an interest in feminist approaches to studying some aspect of violence against women and/or girls. I only supervise students coming in to our Applied Social Psychology program although I often sit on the committees of students entering our clinical program.

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