Lisa M. Diamond received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago in 1993 and her Ph.D. in Human Development from Cornell University in 1999. Her research interests fall into two areas: (1) adolescent and young adult social and sexual development, particularly the development of female sexual identity and orientation over the life course; (2) the formation, functioning, and psychobiology of adolescent and adult attachment relationships, with special attention to the health-protective and emotion-regulating functions of these relationships, as well as dynamic systems models of coregulatory processes in such relationships. She is the recipient of grants from the W.T. Grant Foundation, the National Institutes of Mental Health, the Wayne F. Placek Foundation, the Templeton Foundation, the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, and the Foundation for the Scientific Study of Sexuality.
