Nathan Leonhardt

Assistant Professor

2050 JFSB

Dr. Leonhardt's research generally focuses on flourishing in marriage and long-term committed relationships. Within this overarching focus, Dr. Leonhardt has expertise in researching sexuality (e.g., pornography use, sexual passion, sexual sanctification, couple dynamics surrounding orgasm), religion (e.g., sacredness, rituals, conversion and deconversion), and virtue (e.g., compassion, gratitude, reverence/awe). Dr. Leonhardt has developed sexuality, religion, and virtue as independent lines of research, but also enjoys finding space for these lines to intertwine.
