General research interests

The main theme of my research interest is the integration of biological and sociological models of human behavior. I have pursued these interests in studies of adult women's gendered behavior, studies of sexual behavior, and studies of adolescents.

Add Health research interests and projects

As Add Health Principal Investigator, I have primary responsibility to see that the enormous potential of Add Health data is exploited by the broader research community. My specific subproject in the Add Health program project is analysis of data on romantic relationships.
