Key area(s) of interest/expertise:

Research Themes: violence, workplace bullying, gender, health, sickness absence, knowledge mobilization, qualitative (grounded theory) and mixed-methods research.

My research interests broadly include violence, workplace bullying, gender, and health. I am particularly interested in understanding how gender and sex influence health within the context violence including experiences of workplace bullying. I also have an interest in the use of evidence-based online resources, including film, as a medium for knowledge mobilization.
