Allen served as a visiting assistant professor in the department during the previous academic year. Allen's areas of expertise include intimate partner violence, sexual assault, violence prevention, program evaluation, and psychometrics.
  • The department also welcomes two new visiting assistant professors, Michael Bar-Johnson, Ph.D., and Matthew Murphy, Ph.D. Bar-Johnson's past research provided the first quantitative investigation of male sex workers in the Czech Republic. A focus on the interaction of biological and social determinants of sexual identity is also an area of interest. Murphy's research has focused on the effects of radiation on auditory cognition and on the avian visual and auditory systems.
