Dr. Alexandra Lysova
Alexandra Lysova, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. She earned a Doctor of Sciences degree in sociology at the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2009, where she examined dating violence in Russia. In 2015, she obtained her PhD in Criminology from the University of Toronto (funded by the Trudeau and Connaught Foundations), where she examined women’s experiences with violence. Recently, Dr. Lysova has focused on men’s experiences of intimate partner violence, including victimization, help-seeking behaviour, and issues involving children. She draws on the results of the international focus groups among male victims in four English-speaking countries, Canadian General Social Survey on Victimization, and Homicide Survey. Dr. Lysova’s research has been supported by the prestigious foundations, including Trudeau, Fulbright, Carnegie, and Humboldt foundations, and U.S. Library of Congress and Max Planck Institute.
