As a social/personality psychologist, my research interests include attraction and interpersonal relationships, morals and ethics, political psychology, happiness/well-being, and sexuality. I teach introductory psychology and statistics. I also lead mindfulness meditation for students. My blog on Psychology Today is called The Resistance Hypothesis. I am passionate about learning, growth, curiosity, creativity, flourishing, human development, and working to create a better world with science.
