My main research interests lie in the areas of human sexuality and romantic relationships, with a particular interest in understanding how individuals preserve and protect their romantic relationships against the threat of infidelity as well as understandind factors that contribute to relationship satisfaction and conflict between romantic partners. I am also interested in individual and cultural differences in human sexuality.
