Jackie Wiersma, who received her Ph.D. with us in 2008 and then completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Penn State before joining the faculty of the University of Arkansas in 2010, is making news in her (relatively) new job. She was just featured in the school’s Research Frontiers, as shown in the screen capture above. As discussed in the article, which can be accessed here, Jackie studies the role of alcohol use/misuse in mate selection and relationship functioning. Interpersonal violence is also a related research interest of hers. Further information on Jackie’s research can be gleaned from her ResearchGate page (this posting was updated on July 7, 2016).
