Research Interests



In general, women have been understudied in psychology. I am interested in learning more about their experiences. Specifically, I am interested in women creators (e.g., authors, artists, etc), who tend to be biased against. I am also interested in the experiences of women who are childless by choice or who regret their decision to have children.



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.



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.
