Research Interests

I am primarily interested in the endocrinology of social relationships from an evolutionary perspective. Currently, my research focuses on how preferences, behaviors, and hormonal profiles change in couples across the female partner's ovulatory cycle. My research employs an array of methods, including salivary hormone assays, self-report questionnaires, and measures of overt behavior.
