Fun times discussing research methods in our weekly meeting
We strive to conduct the most scientifically rigorous research possible. To achieve this, we take a feminist empirical approach. That is, we pay attention to social contextual factors and power dynamics in research conduct, framing, interpretation, dissemination, and applications.
Laboratory trainees glean hands-on experience with many facets of the research process. In any given semester, this could include one or more of the following: conceptualizing and designing empirical studies; preparing institutional review board applications; handling data collection, entry, and coding; reviewing literature; preparing conference presentations and manuscripts; presenting findings at professional conferences; and co-reviewing journal manuscripts.
