Claire Fisher (ERC Research Assistant) Do oral contraceptives alter women's mate preferences?

Since graduating with a first-class degree in Psychology from the University of Aberdeen in 2012, I have been working as a Research Assistant on an ERC-funded project investigating the effects of endogenous and exogenous hormones on women's behaviors, social judgments and appearance. I am particularly interested in the hormonal correlates of women's makeup preferences. My recent research has focused on the relationship between women's mating strategy and their physical attractiveness.
