After obtaining his undergraduate degree, Chris decided to dedicate his research career to studying intimate partner violence (IPV). Delving deeper into the field, he realized that limited effort has been invested in researching partner abuse in the LGBTQ community. He hopes to engage in qualitative and quantitative research focused on ameliorating the suffering resulting from health disparities for LGBTQ individuals, especially in relation to partner violence and victimization. His research will serve as a critical step in creating the evidence base for national policy and practice standards to benefit LGBTQ individuals in the future.
