Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I'm Andre, a sophomore at Yale in Jonathan Edwards college. I'm originally from a small town in Kentucky and lived their until moving to college, but I somehow don't have an accent. I'm majoring in Psychology but also love to creatively write and hope to eventually become a professor. Outside of class, I love to take long drives with no destination, make strange concoctions in the dining halls, and, of course, waste time on social media watching cooking videos. I love classes with a lot of discussion and debate, so feel free to chime in whenever and ask any question!

This course will explore the psychology of attraction, asking questions like, "What makes people attractive?", "How do we feel love?", "What determines sexual orientation?", etc. We will look through recent research in social psychology which have helped to uncover the root of attraction. But don't worry, I won't bog you down with too much psychology; there will be plenty of demonstrations and class interactions.
