Personal profile

Research Interests

  • Individual differences
  • Measurement
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Behavior genetics

I am an interdisciplinary scientist, working at the intersection of personality psychology and molecular genetics. My dual expertise in genetic methods and psychological assessment has led to the development of a research program organized around understanding how people, for all the fundamental similarities across members of our species, display such remarkable diversity and flexibility of behavior.

I am not accepting new graduate students to begin in Fall 2024.
