As a researcher I am focused on examining risk and protective factors for perpetrating and falling victim to violence within a multilevel, social-ecological framework. Furthermore, I am interested in developing and evaluating improved research methodologies and analytical methods for assessing and predicting aggression among intimate partners in order to prevent the progression of aggression into violence.
Here are a couple of my selected publications showcasing my work:
