Dr. Jane Ursel was the founding director of RESOLVE, a tri-provincial research network on interpersonal violence.  She has led two longitudinal studies: an 18-year analysis of the first family violence criminal court in Canada and a six-year study of women who have experienced violence in their intimate partner relationships. Ursel now leads research analyzing criminal sexual assault complaint attrition rates.
