Emily Wilhite



Emily Wilhite graduated from Penn State in May 2012 with degrees in Psychology and Spanish. During her time at Penn State, with the guidance of Aaron Pincus, Ph.D., she completed an honor thesis, which examined how individuals with higher levels of narcissism react when they perceive others as dominant and cold. She also worked on an 18-month longitudinal study conducted by Nilam Ram, Ph.D., Aaron Pincus, Ph.D., and David Conroy, Ph.D., that used smart phone devices to collect data on daily interactions of participants in three different age cohorts.

As a fourth-year graduate student in Dr. Kim Fromme’s lab, Emily is interested in studying alcohol-related sexual regret and risky sexual behavior in young women as they transition out of college. Her dissertation project focuses on how online dating and alcohol use influence the likelihood of casual sexual hookups and related positive and negative outcomes.
