Dr. French's Lab

Dr. Juliana French's research integrates theories and knowledge from relationship science and social psychology  (e.g., attachment theory, interdependence theory) with psychobiological and functional perspectives to investigate how individual differences contribute to relationship functioning, developmental calibration of such individual differences (e.g., sexual desire, attachment insecurity), and how features of modern society, such as hormonal contraceptives and social media, alter mechanisms underlying attraction and relationship maintenance. 


Her work has been published in top Psychology journals, including Psychological Science and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
