John Houser's research focuses on the intersection of peer status (popularity and social preference), friendships, risk taking and aggressive behavior (especially relational aggression). He is especially interested in how these dynamics change during the transition to college. This has led him to an additional line of research that investigates fraternities and sororities and the individuals that join them.
