I received my bachelors degree in psychology from Trinity University in 1988, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1993 and 1996, respectively. My research interests include aggression, interpersonal violence, interpersonal attraction, and the psychology of women. More specifically, I have explored the role of environmental factors (mainly ambient temperature), personality, and gender in precipitating aggressive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In addition, I'm interested in social structural explanations for sex differences in attraction.

Primary Interests:

  • Aggression, Conflict, Peace
  • Emotion, Mood, Affect
  • Gender Psychology
