My primary interest is in pleasure and pleasurable emotions, especially their relationship with human health, resilience, creativity and flourishing. I consult and run workshops to help individuals and teams tap into these benefits in an engaging, interactive way. I am also interested in emotional intelligence as it relates to leadership and teamwork.
The other main area of my research is gender - specifically in gender roles. I am a collaborator on the Toward Gender Harmony Project; we have surveyed university students across more than 60 countries on attitudes around gender and are publishing aspects of that work across a number of journals.
