Our research focuses on how basic psychological processes that arise in the context of people's close relationships such as dating and marital relationships might impact relationship outcomes as well as emotional and physical health over time.

We investigate relationship processes using a variety of methods including examining people's subjective perceptions, the speed of their responses (reaction time), physiological responses (e.g., cortisol reactivity), and behavior (e.g., during interactions with their partners).
