Research Statement

My research focuses on violence against women (i.e. intimate partner abuse, stalking, and sexual assault) and the criminal justice response to these problems. Specifically, I have published on topics such as predicting stalking in the context of IPA, the criminal justice response to stalking, gender differences in the perpetration of IPA, police response to IPA, and the impact of rape myths.
