Research Interest

Following decades of research on the psychology of women, human sexuality, and gender-role development, I have shifted my focus to the psychology of gun violence and what can be done about it. I am working on a book on the topic, and have become involved in grassroots organizations, to learn about how people in the real world think about these issues. My research on the psychology of gender is highly relevant because toxic masculinity is one of the driving forces in gun violence. At the heart of my approach is a synthesis of social, developmental, and clinical psychology. I am dedicated to ascertaining how psychology can be applied to solving this very real-world problem.
