Research Interest Statement:

My research examines cultural beliefs about gender, romance, sexuality, and sexual violence in the United States. In one major stream of research, I consider how cultural beliefs about sexual harassment create challenges for people who have experienced it. A second, emerging line of research examines how people believe romantic or sexual interest should be expressed. Methodologically, I toggle between in-depth interviews and survey experiments.
