Background

Franziska is a Lecturer in the School of Social and Political Science and Extraordinary Professor at Optentia Research Unit, North-West University, South Africa. She is currently funded by an ERC Starting Grant and a GCRF Hub Grant investigating intergenerational violence transmission, its predictors, mechanisms and prevention in South Africa. Her research also focuses on prevalence, risk and protective factors of child maltreatment in vulnerable populations in sub-Saharan Africa, health outcomes of violence exposure in childhood, childhood violence prevention and on the development and testing of global child abuse measures. In 2016 she won the ISPCAN C. Henry Kempe Award for outstanding young professional in the field of child abuse and neglect.

Prior to coming to Edinburgh, Franziska was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Evidence-Based Interventions at the University of Oxford funded by an ESRC Future Research Leader Award. Franziska holds a DPhil in Social Interventions (University of Oxford) , an MSc in Evidence-Based Social Interventions (University of Oxford) and a BA in Social Work (Free University of Bolzano-Bozen). Franziska is on the Board of the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN).

Topics interested in supervising

I am particularly interested in supervising students who are keen to conduct quantitative research on child, adolescent and young people populations on the topics: violence, HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, mental health, violence/HIV prevention. I particularly welcome applications from students of non-traditional academic backgrounds and from the global South. I have masses of qualitative and quantitative data on adolescent and young people health, education, behaviour and violence exposures and I welcome applications from students who wish to use this data for analyses.
