Dr. Joshua Duntley

I am an associate professor in the Criminal Justice Program and associated faculty in the Psychology Program at Stockton University in Galloway, NJ.  My research examines violence, victimization, and human mating. I teach a range of undergraduate and graduate courses in criminal justice and psychology. I am also the co-director of the Stockton CSI summer camp for high school students. 

I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Plattsburgh State University in New York, where I had the privilege to work with Dr. Jeanne Ryan, Judy Dashnaw, Dr. Lary ShafferDr. William TookeDr. Matt Merrens, and others. While studying at Plattsburgh State, I worked for the Office of the Dean of Students as a resident assistant, assistant to the Associate Dean, residence hall director, and coordinator of new student orientation.

I received a Ph.D. in Individual Differences and Evolutionary Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin, where I worked with Professor David M. Buss. I was also mentored by a number of other faculty members who strongly influenced my development as a scholar, including Professor Joseph Horn , Professor Peter MacNeilage , Professor Randy Diehl , and Dr. Thomas Darwin.  Professor Buss and I continue to collaborate on several lines of research together. With funding from a Federal VAWA Grant awarded by the Criminal Justice Division of the Texas Governor's Office and a grant from the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health, we conducted studies of stalking and have created a Website to assist victims of stalking in the State of Texas, www.stalkinghelp.org.
