Research Interests:

    My research focuses on uncovering the processes that lead people to experience similar thoughts and emotions across different relationships. The framework of adult attachment theory, coupled with social-cognitive paradigms, has been especially useful in guiding my research. I plan to continue to research questions such as the following: Do people’s desires for predictability and to confirm their existing beliefs sometimes sabotage their interpersonal growth? How do people select their social environments and what leads them to make those choices? What level of awareness do people have over their relational choices? How do people of different attachment types “fit” with their social environments and what are the features they value most in others?
