Exploring the role of control in intimate partner aggression.
School of Psychology
I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Criminology and Psychology at the University of Auckland in 2013. Working in prisons in both a voluntary and in a paid capacity, consequently led me to return to study a Masters in Forensic Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington. My PhD research investigates the validity of current conceptualisations of control in relation to intimate partner aggression.
