Research summary

I use a social psychological approach to understand the cognitive and affective aspects of close relationships and their effects on behavior and health and well-being. I am particularly interested in how promoting positive relationship experiences benefits close others immediately and over time. My  expertise lies in a theoretically-driven, dyadic, multi-method approach to studying close relationship dynamics.
