I am a doctoral student in the department of Human Development. I was born and raised in Skopje, Macedonia where I received my B.A. in Psychology from the University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius.
|Current Research Activities:|
My general interests are in exploring marginal and non-traditional sexual expressions and identities, and their relationship to psychological, social, and sexual well-being. I am currently involved in two research programs. One of them is focused on understanding “mostly heterosexual”, a sexual orientation category which appears to be the largest non-heterosexual group, but has so far been largely overlooked in past research. My other main project investigates the links between casual, uncommitted sex in young adults and psychological well-being, using cross-sectional, longitudinal, and weekly diary data. I am particularly interested in uncovering personal and situational factors that influence this link, as well as the psychological mechanisms through which engaging in casual sex may impact well-being.
