My research focuses on sex differences in negative sexual consequences of acute intoxication and the effects of chronic heavy alcohol use on expression of sexually selected traits. I received my B.A. in Physical Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I worked for the Center of Evolutionary Psychology. I received my M.S. and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Miami, where I worked for the Evolution and Human Behavior Laboratory. I worked in the Alcohol, Health and Behavior Lab and the Social Cognitive and Addiction Neuroscience Lab as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri. I now work at the Research Institute on Addictions on the medical campus of the University at Buffalo where I am funded by an NRSA from NIAAA. Curriculum Vitae
