Madison Xiaoyao Bogard (she/her)
Madison is a doctoral student at Columbia University School of Social Work exploring the intersections of intimate partner violence (IPV), illicit drug use, and criminalization. Her research delves into the multi-level impact of substance use coercion on drug-using women and seeks to understand the survival and care strategies women engage in when traditional paths to safety are inaccessible.
Currently, Madison is a fellow in the NIH T-32 Predoctoral Training Program on HIV and Substance in the Criminal Justice System, under the mentorship of Dr. Victoria Frye. Her goal is to develop a syndemic-based intervention that employs an anti-carceral framework to enhance safe drug use and survival strategies among women experiencing IPV.
Prior to her doctoral studies, Madison worked as a counselor and legal advocate for survivors detained at Rikers Island, and she also served as a case manager for incarcerated men in Detroit, MI. In her personal time, she runs a community mutual aid initiative providing survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) and sex trafficking with free tattoo cover-ups.
Madison earned her BA from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, and her MSW from Columbia University School of Social Work.
