Research Interests
Avanti Adhia’s research interests are in social epidemiology and violence prevention, specifically around intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. Her dissertation research focuses on 1) early life predictors of intimate partner violence victimization and perpetration in adolescence and early adulthood using the U.S. Growing Up Today Study, and 2) methodologic issues in how IPV-related homicides are captured in the National Violent Death Reporting System and the extent to which IPV results in the homicides of children in the United States.
