Dr. Bilge Erten, Associate Professor of Economics, has been awarded a two-year R21 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This grant will support her ongoing research on the “Spillover Effects of Policies Targeting Opioid Abuse on Intimate Partner Violence.”

Professor Erten, in collaboration with colleagues Professor Dhaval Dave (Bentley University) and Associate Professor Pinar Keskin (Wellesley) will utilize restricted-use National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) data and other key datasets to delve deeper into the complex relationship between substance abuse and intimate partner violence (IPV) in the United States. The team aims to provide critical insights that will inform public health policies and interventions.

“This grant marks a significant milestone in our research journey, enabling us to address a vital public health concern at the intersection of the opioid epidemic and its impact on violence towards women.”
