Research Interests

I have varied research interests but the majority are in the area of sexuality such as sexual assault, sexual harassment, “hooking-up,” sexting, and normality of sexual behaviour. I have also been involved in research about academic entitlement, gambling, Facebook, cell phone use, HIV contraction, and the HPV vaccination. I regularly serve as second reader on honours theses and topics have included sex work, video games and aggression, aviation, female sexual offenders, Facebook, cell phone use, cyber harassment and cyber solicitation, mental illness, acquaintance rape, and eating disorders.
