Fostering Care and Connection

Research in our lab is focused on the study of relationships and well-being. We examine how the different ways in which people care and connect with each other impacts personal and relationship well-being.

Caring

We study the careful balance of care needed to foster satisfying relationships, while also sustaining one's own well-being.

Connecting

We study how the emotions we express and perceive in others affects our ability to build deeper social connections.

Well-Being

We study how emotions and motivations uniquely shape personal well-being, partner well-being, and overall relationship quality.
