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.
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.
