Research interests:

My primary research interests focus on sexually aggressive behavior and sexual risk taking. I am also interested in posttraumatic stress disorder and substance abuse as independent disorders and in relation to sexual aggression. In the past, I have examined person and situational factors that can influence: 1) men’s engagement in sexually aggressive behavior in a laboratory setting, 2) women’s risk recognition for sexually inappropriate behaviors, and 3) observer perceptions of sexually aggressive behavior. For example, I have examined the relationship between factors such as peer interactions, alcohol use, alcohol expectancies, club drug use, intentionality, sexual orientation, perpetrator motivation, and cognitive defensiveness in the context of a person X situation model.

In addition, I have examined factors related to successful substance abuse treatment, such as readiness to change processes. I also interested in human sexuality and couple’s issues, as well as the psychological treatment of substance abuse and PTSD. 

Please feel free to contact me to discuss potential research opportunities.
