Easton CURRICULUM VITA October 2011 Work Address Home Address The University of Texas at Austin 3524 Greystone Drive Department of Psychology #197 1 University Station, A8000 Austin, TX Austin, TX Cell Phone: (954) Website: Education Ph.D. Expected 2012 The University of Texas at Austin Individual Differences and Evolutionary Psychology Graduate Advisor: David Buss, Ph.D. Dissertation: Costs and Benefits to Men and Women of Short-Term Mating M.A Florida Atlantic University Psychology Graduate Advisor, Todd Shackelford, Ph.D. Thesis: Morbid Jealousy from an Evolutionary Psychological Perspective B.S York College of Pennsylvania Magna Cum Laude Major: Psychology Research Interests My research interests focus on the evolution of human mating strategies with an emphasis on short-term low commitment relationships, women s sexual strategies, and long-term relationship maintenance. Recent empirical work includes changes in women s mating strategies across the lifespan, willingness to engage in short-term low commitment relationships as a function of the potential costs and benefits of such a relationship, sex differences in detecting sexual exploitability in women, and individual differences in men s feelings of jealousy and relationship maintenance as a function of erectile health.

Teaching Interests I have taught relatively small classes in Introduction to Psychology and Research Methods and I really enjoy being able to give individual attention to students. I have assisted and given guest lectures in much larger classes ( students) and would be comfortable teaching classes of that size as well. I am interested in teaching general classes such as Introduction to Psychology and Biopsychology. I would also like to teach classes in my area of interest which include Evolutionary Psychology, Human Mating, Social Psychology, and Personality. Additionally, I am more than happy to teach writing component classes or to structure my classes so they fulfill writing requirements.
