I am a doctoral candidate in social psychology, studying close relationships with a dual emphasis on substantive questions and methodological issues.
My substantive interests include social support dynamics in romantic couples, the effects of context on couples’ functioning over time, relationships and health & well-being, and issues of the self in relationships.
My methodological interests include modeling relationship phenomena using dyadic data, using intensive longitudinal designs to examine individual and dyad-level change, modeling functional and contextualized interdependence in couples over time, and examining & developing methods of assessment and analysis for relationships research.
I have taught several 400-level courses on psychological measurement, with a focus on topics such as scale construction, descriptive and inferential data analysis & interpretation, scale integrity assessment, and applied testing and assessment. I also have interest and expertise in issues of data collection and management, cross-platform software utilization for data management & analysis, and programming for research and data management.
I am also a contributor to Science of Relationships (click here to read my SofR articles).
