Advisor: Dr. Omri Gillath
Research Lab: Gillath Lab & Sex Lab
Research Interests: My research focuses on close relationships and the underlying motivations of attraction, sexual behaviors, and short- vs. long-term commitment. In past work, I have investigated women’s sexual motivations and goals for sexual hook-ups. I am currently heading research projects on (1) the creation and validation of a measure for pornography consumption motives, (2) the motivations for, and outcomes of, communicating infidelity to one's partner(s), and (3) the acceptability of flirting behaviors.
