My research program deals with the psychosocial determinants of women's health and well-being. Within this program, I have been particularly active in two areas: violence against women and cervical cancer prevention. I have completed a number of projects dealing with victims and survivors' perspectives of the criminal justice system and am currently working on a study examining the extent to which housing discrimination impacts battered women's ability to secure rental housing. More recently, I have begun to explore the psychosocial effects and implications of human papillomanvirus (HPV) testing and vaccination. HPV is a sexually transmitted virus that is a necessary, but insufficient, precursor to cervical cancer. There has been very little psychosocial research conducted in this area, but it is an important area for social psychologists to explore. To that end, I am currently involved in six HPV projects dealing with issues such as HPV self-sampling as an alternative to Pap testing and HPV vaccine acceptability.
