Research Interests:

My current research projects include: 1) studies of the relationships between religiosity, religious self-regulation and intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration and victimization, including analysis of the effects of a variety of moderating and mediating variables (e.g., alcohol use, sexism, social dominance orientation, right-wing authoritarianism, empathy) on these relationships; 2) evaluation of a therapeutic horticulture program at a local battered women's shelter; 3) evaluation of law enforcement trainings on identifying and responding to sex trafficking; and 4) secondary analyses of data from the Campus Attitudes Toward Safety (CATS) campus climate survey.
