Introduction
My research focuses on functioning, psychopathology, and resilience following experiences of interpersonal violence, particularly in marginalized populations including: military veterans, resettled refugees, rape survivors and persons living with mental illness. I'm also interested in the role of social connection in resilience following adversity and the social determinants of violence and associated health consequences.
