Dr Harrison has been doing research on military families for the last 26 years. From 2008 to 2016, and in collaboration with thirteen other researchers, she carried out a SSHRC-funded large mixed methods project, titled The Wellbeing, Family Functioning and Social Development of Adolescents in Military Families (see http://www2.unb.ca/youthwellbeing). She is a former director of the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Centre for Family Violence Research, a former member of the Canadian Forces Advisory Council to Veterans Affairs Canada, an External Associate of the York University Centre for International and Security Studies, and a member of the Inter-University Seminar on Armed Forces and Society. She has a strong interest in institutional ethnography as a research strategy. In 2007, she received UNB's Faculty of Arts Excellence in Teaching Award.
