Title of PhD: Exploring Intimate Partner Violence in International Dating Samples
Supervisor: Dr Louise Dixon
I am interested in how attitudes and other salient risk factors of partner violence impact in young dating relationships. I am specifically investigating how certain mental health correlates (such as depression, PTSD, psychological flooding, etc.) and other proximal variables (attitudes about aggression, dyadic adjustment, jealousy, etc.) relate to different types of aggressive and/or controlling behaviour in men and women.
