Katie M. Edwards’ interdisciplinary research focuses broadly on better understanding the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence, primarily intimate partner violence (IPV) and sexual assault (SA) among adolescents and emerging adults. Her current research focuses on risk and protective factors for IPV and SA perpetration and victimization, and factors that facilitate or hinder bystander action in situations of IPV and SA; disclosure, leaving and recovery processes among survivors of IPV and SA; and individuals’ reactions to participating in IPV and SA research.
