My research focuses on sex differences in negative sexual consequences of acute intoxication and the effects of alcohol use on the expression of sexually selected traits. I am currently running an alcohol administration study to examine the effects of intoxication on men’s sexual interest judgments and women’s sexual risk perceptions related to risk for alcohol-related sexual assault. I received my BA in Physical Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I worked at the Center of Evolutionary Psychology. I received my MS and PhD in Psychology from the University of Miami, where I worked in the Evolution and Human Behavior Lab. 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 Individual (F32) Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institutes of Health.
