Dr. RaeAnn Anderson’s research is grounded in a social-justice paradigm that assumes violence affects marginalized populations the most. She has particular expertise in how sexual violence affects sexual minority individuals and is engaging in projects with Indigenous people.

Her research centers around achieving a better understanding of both the mechanisms of sexual victimization and sexual perpetration to inform risk reduction and prevention programs, and the measurement of sexual violence constructs.
