Research & Scholarship
My research interests center on gender and cultural influences on human behavior with particular attention to issues of suicidality and the under representation of women, and some ethnic minority men, in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Findings from these studies suggest that cultural messages play a central role in both self-harm and vocational choice.
