My research interest are intimate relationships particularly with a focus on norms of coupledom and heteronormativity. I am currently involved in a project on polyamory where we have interviewed people practicing consensual non-monogamy and we are publishing our results in the form of articles and book chapters. Previous studies have been focused on marriage, cohabitation and serial monogamy. My doctoral thesis explored changes in marriage and cohabitation regulation tracing how discourses of love and intimacy developed in governmental reports between 1909 and 2009.
