Romance Studies (2024) explores the theme of romance under 21 different narrative forms and voices (much as "studies" do in classical music, think Chopin or Liszt), each in relation with an academic or scientific field. For instance "Miss Misao Misses: A Time Dependent Adaptive Geometry" describes the unexpected consequences of abstinence on a budding relationship; "How to be Lonely in Medellín: Analyzing Hidden Phenomena in Asymmetric Complex Systems" breaks down a single romantic scene into a multifaceted story of jealousy and arousal.
