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 recruiting new doctoral students to begin in Fall 2023. I am looking for students interested in either (a) gender and sexuality, or (b) neo-eugenics and genetic determinism beliefs, or (c) both! Successful applicants do not need to have any specific training history in these areas, but must have enthusiasm for learning and public engagement.
