General Area of Research

Positive psychology of sexuality and gender, protective attributes of stigma, sexual & gender identity and well-being (LGBTQQIA), social and personality development, and stereotypes and prejudice.

Current Research

I am interested in the positive and protective attributes of stigma and minority membership. From a social constructionist perspective, I argue that the same discriminatory sociocultural structures and factors that create and encourage stigma (e.g., homophobia) can also serve as catalysts for positive qualities and well-being. For example, my Master's thesis studied the question: "Why is it gay to be gay?"
