Research Interests

My research interests are broadly focused on the bidirectional relationship between individuals' romantic relationships and their physical and mental health. I am particularly interested in couple-based treatments for various forms of mental and physical illness. I am also highly interested in how individuals from different backgrounds experience romantic relationships and psychopathology, and how to adapt and disseminate effective couple-based interventions to diverse and underserved populations.
