As a social scientist and mixed methods researcher, the primary focus of Dr. Fleckman’s work is the prevention of violence. Her current research interests include the evaluation of structural and community-level mechanisms for the prevention of gun violence, childhood adversity, and intimate partner violence. Much of her work contributes to how such mechanisms can be influenced to reduce risk for violence and promote health equity. Dr. Fleckman works collaboratively with local and national community-based groups and advocacy organizations. She also serves as the associate director for the Tulane University Violence Prevention Institute and the senior director for the Tulane Gun Violence Policy Lab. Prior to joining as faculty, Dr. Fleckman completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship with the support of Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago.
