Current Position:

Associate Professor, Director of Graduate Studies

Description:

My research program focuses on how people communicatively manage problematic events in the context of personal relationships, specifically how people manage and enact emotions related to revenge and jealousy. Recently, I have begun researching the associations between communication in personal relationships (problematic and otherwise) and physical and emotional well-being.
