Junior Affiliate (Masters)

Brynn Trofimuk is a Master’s student at the University of New Brunswick under the supervision of Dr. David Hofmann. Her research interests broadly include terrorism, right-wing extremism, misogyny, and violence against women. Additionally, she has experience researching terrorism in Canada, as she is currently a research assistant on a project funded by Public Safety Canada, entitled Updating the ‘Environmental Scan of Right-Wing Extremism in Canada’.
Her role in this project is to lead a team of four other research assistants; co-coordinating information with the research team across Canada; and conducting data collection in order to develop, code, and analyze a database of activities, individuals, and groups associated with the far-right movement in Canada. She has also presented a subset of this research, which explored right-wing extremism in Atlantic Canada, at the 2019 American Society of Criminology Annual Convention. For her Master’s thesis, she plans to utilize both qualitative methods and social network analysis in order to analyze cases of misogynist terrorism in Canada.
