Scholarly Interests:

My research interests derive from intersecting areas of evolutionary and forensic psychology. The focus of my research is on violence prevention. Methods of improving self-defense self-efficacy for women are of special interest. Current research projects involve gender differences in threat perception, physical self-efficacy, assertiveness and vulnerability to assault. Several preliminary studies in the development of an attitudes toward self-defense scale and an attitudes towards weapons scale are ongoing.
