Meg received a Sylff fellowship for her Masters research in 2017. She is currently completing a PhD in Psychology at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. Meg’s PhD research explores family violence events from a perpetrator’s perspective. Her research aims are to develop a theory of family violence that: (1) applies to a wide range of perpetrators who use family violence at different levels of severity, and (2) explains how multiple factors interact during a family violence event. Meg intends that her research will enhance our understanding of the treatment needs of family violence perpetrators in New Zealand.
