Dr. Anastasia Gage is a Professor in the Department of Global Community Health and Behavioral Sciences. Her current research focuses on women’s and adolescent health, particularly violence against women and child marriage, in low-income countries. Her work has examined dating violence perpetration, women’s experiences of domestic violence; power, control and sexual violence; and the linkages between maternal violence victimization and child physical punishment. She has been actively involved in implementing a school-based dating violence prevention curriculum in Haiti and in conducting research on gender norms.
