Dr. Juliana French is a social psychologist who integrates classic relationship science with biobehavioral and evolutionary perspectives to study how evolved relationship processes function in modern society. She uses longitudinal, dyadic, and experimental methods to examine how modern novelties, such as hormonal contraceptives or the vast pool of easily accessible alternative partners, impact people's partner standards, long-term relationship maintenance, and intrasexual competition. Her work has been published in top journals, including Psychological Science and Evolution & Human Behavior

Dr. French is taking applications for a graduate student to be admitted Fall 2022.
