We are excited to welcome two new postdoctoral researchers to the Kinsey Institute: Dr. Jessica Campbell and Dr. Maggie Bennett-Brown.
Dr. Jessica Campbell is a social psychologist who completed her PhD at the University of Florida in 2021. Her research interests focus on better understanding of both implicit and explicit attitudes toward marginalized populations with a special focus on racial groups and women. She is also interested in the role of intersectionality in the realm of psychological research.
Dr. Campbell’s more recent work has focused on the internalization and attribution of ambivalent sexism among heterosexual, U.S. American women, particularly in the context of romantic relationships.
Dr. Maggie Bennett-Brown received her PhD in Communication from the University of Connecticut in 2019. Her primary areas of specialization are interpersonal and health communication, focusing on affection and its effects on mental and physical health within the context of intimate romantic relationships.
Her most recent research projects have focused on examining communication during sexual activity as it relates to sexual desire, arousal, and satisfaction. Her research has been presented at national and international conferences and published in top communication and interdisciplinary journals.
