She is particularly interested in the law and policy issues surrounding male intimate partner violence against women, sexual assault, homicide, and HIV non- disclosure. She is currently working on an SSHRC funded project on sexual assault across the lifespan and a project on the ways in which HIV nondisclosure prosecutions have shaped and distorted sexual assault law. She teaches in the areas of criminal law, homicide, sentencing and mental health law. She is the secretary of the Faculty Appointments Committee and the co-supervisor of the Gale Moot team.  She is also a member of the  LEAF National Law Program Committee and the Litigation Advisory Committee for CACL.
