PhD Project

My doctoral research project seeks to generate insights into how image-based sexual abuse (IBSA) is experienced, understood, and handled by adolescents and emerging adults in Norway. Through a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, the project explores the phenomenology and mechanisms of IBSA within three groups typically involved in these incidents: victims, perpetrators and bystanders.
