My research focuses primarily on aggression and violence. Within this area, I examine various factors related to aggression, including rumination and anger, gang involvement, intergroup processes, and alcohol. In addition, I am interested in forensic topics such as infra-humanization and punishment of offenders, alcohol and crime, and the impact of objectification of women.
