My primary areas of interest are in the field of close relationships and ethnic studies. I am especially interested in the impact of personality characteristics (e.g., attachment styles, cultural values) and demographic characteristics (e.g., gender, ethnicity) on personal relationship processes (e.g., accommodation, interpersonal resource exchange).

Primary Interests:

  • Close Relationships
  • Culture and Ethnicity
  • Gender Psychology
  • Intergroup Relations
  • Interpersonal Processes
  • Personality, Individual Differences
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Research Methods, Assessment
