Research Interests

I am interested in studying how depressive symptoms develop and are maintained within the context of intimate relationships. More specific interests include (a) individual resiliency factors that protect against affective concordance when one partner is depressed, and (b) predictors of behaviors that can lead to adverse relational and mental health outcomes, such as excessive reassurance seeking.
