Research Interests

 

WOMEN CREATORS

In general, women creators are undervalued. For example, historically, and into today, many women authors feel the need to publish under male pseudonyms in order to be published.  Broadly, my research looks at where this bias comes from.

 

SEX POSITIVITY 

The term 'sex positivity' has become more commonplace in recent years both in popular media and in academic works. However, little research has been done examining what it is and its real world effects. My goal is to change this developing a better understanding of sex positive attitudes.

 

COMMITMENT TO TRANSPARENCY 

I am committed to being open and transparent in my work. All studies will be preregistered prior to data being analyzed and all data, code, and materials from my personal research will be posted on the Open Science Framework.
