My research falls in the areas of psychology of women, human sexuality, and gender development. One current project investigates the emergence of the gender difference in depression in adolescence, working with a longitudinal study, the Wisconsin Study of Families and Work, www.wsfw.us. Another current project, funded by the National Science Foundation, uses meta-analysis to analyze research on gender differences and similarities in mathematics performance.
