Alison Cares, Ph.D., is a sociologist and criminologist whose career has focused on engaging in research that will help reduce gender-based violence and victimization through a better understanding of its causes and consequences, as well as what prevention and intervention efforts are effective in its reduction. This has included an emphasis on collaborative projects with practitioners and other scholars. She has worked in the field of violence against women for the past 20 years, first in community outreach and education for a sexual and domestic violence services agency, and then as a researcher.
