Evita’s interests include cyberpsychology, personality, and social processes. Evita’s research explores personality (particularly dark traits) predictors of online behaviours, including online dating, trolling, cyberbullying, and cyberstalking. Evita believes that understanding traits that predict engaging in online antisocial behaviours is imperative for development of effective interventions and treatment. Evita’s other research interests include mate selection, gender roles, and sexuality.
