Professor Sillars' research
focuses on conflict and interpersonal perception, particularly within the context of
interpersonal relationships and families. Much of his research investigates the
inferences that family members make during communication and how inferential processes
contribute to understanding/misunderstanding among family members.
In his free time, Dr.
Sillars takes full advantage of the outdoor opportunities that come with living in
Montana, especially river sports, biking, hiking, fly fishing, and backcountry skiing.
