- Close relationships
- Interpersonal attraction
- Social support
My research focuses on interpersonal attraction and the formation and maintenance of close relationships. More specifically, I examine how daily interactions (such as social support, compassionate acts, or the use of humor) influence relationship functioning. I am also interested in how couples evaluate their relationships and the implications of discrepancies between implicit and explicit evaluations. Finally, I am interested in methodology, including techniques for addressing excessively inattentive or careless responding on self-report measures.
