My research falls in the areas of psychology of women, human sexuality, and gender-role development.  One current research project focuses on the emergence of gender differences in depression in adolescence, using data from our longitudinal project, The Wisconsin Study of Families and Work.  Another current project, funded by the National Science Foundation, uses the technique of meta-analysis to synthesize available data on gender differences and similarities in mathematics performance.  Another current project evaluates whether single-sex schooling actually produces better outcomes than coeducational schooling.  American Council for Coeducational Schooling,
