Research

My research has explored what are the active ingredients that make up a successful and enduring marital and family relationship.  Specifically I have examined the effects of varying stressors, communication styles, health behaviors, and emotional processes on relationships.  

Current Research

In collaboration with Dr. Wickrama,  I am examining how marital committment influences spouses' eating and exercise behaviors. Also, in collaboration with Dr. Futris, I am examining the couple and coparenting experiences of foster parents.
