Broadly, my research interests include women's/gender-related themes, social justice/multiculturalism, and trauma. Specifically, I am interested in examining the influence of sexual objectification experiences upon person's mental and physical health, interpersonal violence, body image and disordered eating, feminist identity development, LGBTQIQ-related themes, race/ethnicity, experiences of discrimination, and social justice/advocacy.
