My research is concerned with gender violence – its varieties, causes, consequences and politicizations. My recent book, Gender Violence in Ecofeminist Perspective: Intersections of Animal Oppression, Patriarchy and Domination of the Earth, aims to begin an eco-centered, eco-feminist, informed discussion about the ways in which gender, patriarchy and violence are bound up with our relationship to the environment. My articles appear in peer-reviewed journals in the fields of criminology, feminist criminology, gender studies, and violence studies. I teach a range of core and special topics courses, focused on general criminology, gender violence, collective violence, green criminology and deviance.
