Nicole Jeffrey, University of Guelph
Nicole Jeffrey is a PhD student in Applied Social Psychology at the University of Guelph. Her research has mainly focused on issues of violence against women, including sexual and intimate partner violence. For her MA thesis, she used qualitative interview data to examine university women’s subjective experiences of sexual coercion victimization in intimate relationships with men. For her PhD dissertation, Nicole intends to extend her MA research by examining men’s subjective experiences perpetrating sexual coercion in intimate relationships and the ways in which men talk about sex, dating, and sexual coercion with other men. She is currently working as a research assistant for Dr. Myrna Dawson for the Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative for Vulnerable Populations.
