Research interests: 

I previously worked as a research assistant to Martha Thompson (NEIU Professor Emerita) on a project analyzing survey data from IMPACT Chicago, a feminist self-defense organization. I remain interested in the effectiveness of participating in a self-defense class as a means of empowerment, confidence, and violence prevention. I am also interested in exploring various ways individuals can interrupt rape culture.
