Dr. Smith and her lab engage in three primary research activities: (a) investigating people’s daily and relational well-being, frequently via Self-Determination Theory, (b) examining the interpersonal aspects of personality and individual differences, including dark personality, attachment, and sociosexuality, and (c) exploring the experiences of and downstream consequences of gender and gender ideology (e.g., sexism, feminism, precarious manhood).
