jen macgregor, phd
I am a Senior Research Associate in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies at Western University and a Community Research Associate at Western’s Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children.
I completed my PhD in Social Psychology, studying interpersonal relationships and self-esteem, at the University of Waterloo (2011). Desiring to be involved in research with greater potential for ‘real world’ impact, I began post-doctoral work on family violence and knowledge mobilization at Western University. In this role I received an Ontario Women’s Health Scholars Award to conduct a qualitative study on the work people do for their health, collaborated with the Region of Peel on a community-based research project, and began to contribute to interdisciplinary research projects involving violence experts from across Canada and beyond. For example, as a member of the Domestic Violence at Work Network (DVatWorkNet.org), I was a lead researcher on the first Canadian national study on the impacts of domestic violence on the workplace. Transitioning into a research associate role in 2015, I continued to work in the area of intimate partner violence, including managing a series of systematic review projects. My current projects include evaluating trauma- and violence-informed training initiatives (GTVIncubator.uwo.ca) and conducting a systematic review of qualitative research on the benefits and drawbacks of work for women exposed to intimate partner violence.
