Ashley J Coventry earned a B.S. in Psychological and Brain Sciences and a B.A. in Communication from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is continuing to pursue her research interests at UCSB working with Dr. Tamsin German in the Cognition and Development Lab (CDL) and Dr. Daniel Conroy-Beam in the Computational Mate Choice (CMC) Lab. Other than her research, Ashley enjoys watching Formula 1 racing and playing with her cat, Batman.


I am broadly interested in using an evolutionary perspective to examine how human romantic and sexual relationships begin, develop, and (often) end. More specifically, I am currently doing work researching human mate preferences, specifically focusing on understudied populations in mating research, such as LGBTQ+ and consensually non-monogamous populations.
