Welcome Dr Brooks!
Furscience is pleased to welcome Dr Thomas Brooks as the newest addition to the Furscience Team!
Dr Brooks has already made his debut as an official Furscientist on the ground at Texas Furry Fiesta 2022, so those Furs in attendance may have already had a chance to greet and interact with him. By the way, if you didn’t get a chance to fill out the survey at TFF2022, you can still participate in the research by filling out the survey at Study 11–it will be open to participation until April 30, 2022.
As a recent addition to the Psychology Department at New Mexico Highlands University, Dr Brooks brings the Furscience Team an expertise in human sexuality and fandom studies, among other research interests. His research into sexuality specifically is guiding our inquiries to help clarify misconceptions about furry sexuality.
The Furscience Team continues to receive requests to study furry sexuality, and given his specialization, Dr Brooks will be taking the lead on some of these research projects. He’s already published books and papers with the cofounders of Furscience, and his latest book, published with Dr Plante and Dr Reysen, “CAPE: A Multidimensional Model of Fan Interest,” seeks to better understand fan interest and behaviour. That book is available for purchase, so be sure to grab your very own copy:
Be sure to check out his bio, follow him on Twitter, visit his website, “Sex .O. Graphy,” and check out the Podcast, “Psychosocial Distancing,” he cohosts with Daniel Chadborn on Anchor by Spotify.
Dr Brooks was recently on “The More You Know” podcast to discuss the furry fandom, Furscience, his experiences at TFF, and a teaser to our new article about furry sexual motivation, so be sure to check that out, too!
You can leave comments or questions for Dr Brooks here (below), tag him and tweet at Furscience, or you can contact him directly.
We look forward to more of his scholarship and continued publications exploring and understanding the Furry Fandom with us, for you, the Furry Community 🙂
