Research Interest: I am primarily interested in studying close relationships. Broadly speaking, I am interested in researching topics such as attraction, mating strategies, partner preferences, and overall relationship functioning. I am also interested in understanding the cultural differences in romantic relationships, particularly regarding attitudes on sex and extra-marital affairs. Finally, I am interested in using attachment theory to understand behaviors and goals in close relationships.
