Barry X. Kuhle, Ph.D.

Barry X. Kuhle, Ph.D., (pronounced “Q-lee”) received his B.A. in psychology from Binghamton University before heading west to earn his Ph.D. in evolutionary psychology and individual differences from the University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the evolved psychological mechanisms that underlie commitment and jealousy in romantic relationships. He is also interested in the evolution and development of both sexual fluidity and reproductive senescence in women. The interdisciplinary nature of his research is reflected in the diverse outlets with which he has published. In addition to psychology journals, his scholarship has appeared in journals dedicated to animal behavior, neuroscience, medicine, and menopause. He enjoys infusing popular culture into his teaching and research in the Department of Psychology at the University of Scranton. Outside the classroom, he takes pleasure in schooling his students and colleagues on the racquetball and basketball courts. He’s also quite fond of scandalizing his friends with outrageously edgy Facebook posts.
