Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Kirsty McGregor is a Lecturer in Criminology at the School of Humanities and Social Science. Her research focuses on domestic and sexual violence and abuse, with a specific focus on victimisation and help-seeking experiences. 

Dr McGregor’s research interests are focussed on the experience of crime and victimisation through an intersectional lens. She is particularly interested in exploring how people experience intimate partner violence, and the ways that age, gender, and sexuality shape their experiences, help-seeking and support needs. Kirsty uses qualitative and mixed methods to explore these issues, and more recently has become interested in participatory and creative methods. Her current research focuses on intimate partner violence experienced by LGBTQ+ people, and men's unwanted sexual experiences.
