Research Statement

I am a social-personality psychologist interested in how relationships and the people in them change over time and across situations. My research focuses on how factors both inside (biological, hormonal) and outside (social roles, geography) of people influence their approach to social relationships. My work examines phenomena as broad as how relationships and social institutions shape development and as focused as the hormonal mechanisms that underlie love and intimacy. 

Please check for more up-to-date information. 

I am considering accepting students for Fall 2020 but please contact me for more details.
