Professor of Psychology
I am interested in accepting graduate students for Fall of 2023. I am currently not accepting students who are interested only in sexuality research or who want to focus on a particular subject population.
My current research addresses three main topics: 1) explaining gender differences in sexuality with a particular focus on the role of orgasm and 2) consequences of nescience, subjective perceptions of bias, and gaslighting and 3) irrationality in perceptions of risk, particularly surrounding either STIs or COVID.
