Work against sexual violence earns Canada Research Chair for UWindsor professor

Charlene Senn’s goal is to empower women.

The University of Windsor professor has devoted her professional life to arming women with the knowledge and tools they need to better protect themselves against sexual violence without limiting their freedom.

And it’s that work that has led to her appointment as the Canada Research Chair in this field of study.

“During my undergraduate degree I really didn’t know what I was going to do and had always thought about careers like medicine or dentistry,” Dr. Senn said.

Troubled testing: UWindsor prof warns concussion testing for young athletes may be flawed

Many young athletes who have suffered a concussion may be at risk of returning to play too early because of invalid baseline testing, warns a University of Windsor professor.

Psychology associate professor Chris Abeare recently completed a study of 7,897 athletes between 10 and 21-years-old and found that 55.7 per cent failed at least one of four validity measures, suggesting that their baseline test scores are lower than their actual cognitive ability.
