Research Interests:

My research interests span a number of areas in social psychology including social cognition, personality, affect, self-regulation, conflict, and close relationships.

Current Research:

I am a third year graduate student working in collaboration with Susan Andersen, and Pat Shrout. I am interested in how we mentally represent significant others in our lives, and how they may come to influence new relationship endeavors. Currently, I am working on several projects exploring the role of meaning-systems that are created with significant others, and how to regulate the influence that a particular significant other may have when forming new relationships.
