We are a research team based at Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC. Our work examines public scholarship at the intersection of digital technologies and social media platforms, online scholarship, and equity and human rights issues.

Combining qualitative and quantitative methods with feminist analysis, our research aims to make sense of online abuse to aid in policy and strategy development at varied levels, from the individuals, to the institutions, and to the platforms and the networks they afford, as well as governments.

We have mobilized our research efforts and results in diverse and multimodal ways for academic and non-academic audiences, including through peer-reviewed publications, presentations, op-eds, simulations, and research shorts.
