Research Interests

My program of research examines the factors shaping sexuality development, sexual behavior, preferences, and dysfunction.  My research is grounded in studying the role of early sexual experiences in shaping later development, and in this respect my work is grounded in evolutionary and developmental theories, such as Life History Theory. My current research examines the role of reward processing and pleasure in in the connection between early adversity and later sexuality and sexual behavior.
