Additional Information

My research centers on intimate partner violence (IPV) – psychological, physical, or sexual abuse within romantic and sexual relationships – among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals. Research has found that LGBTQ individuals are more likely than heterosexuals to experience IPV and its many negative consequences, and yet policies, services, and interventions often overlook this stigmatized population. To help raise awareness about and improve solutions to LGBTQ IPV, I am currently working on several projects:

   o    Co-Editor for what will be amongst the first books published on transgender IPV (est. publication in 2019).
   o    Co-Investigator on a 5-year longitudinal study of the causal pathways leading into and out of healthy and unhealthy sexual minority youth relationships.
   o    Principal Investigator on a multi-city study about peer support for LGBTQ IPV perpetrators.
   o    Co-Principal Investigator on a study about syndemic family violence risk factors and outcomes among LGBTQ and heterosexual-cisgender university students.

I look forward to continuing to serve those who live in what scholars have termed a "double closet": LGBTQ victims silenced not only by fear of their abusers but also by the fear that those who are homophobic and transphobic in society will refuse to help them.

To learn more about this important issue, or if you are interested in future research collaborations, volunteer research positions, speaking engagements, or media interviews, please contact me at my listed University email address.

Additional Information

“As a former student and Criminal Justice major at Northeastern, I can identify with students who have to ‘burn the candle at both ends,’ so to speak. I often tell students at the beginning of each semester that the most important part of my resume is the fact that I once sat in the same seat at this university and traveled the same path. I believe that it is important to give students, who are quite often juggling a full-time job with full-time studies, a lively and thought-provoking educational experience that is fun, upbeat, and grounded in experiential reality.”
