I am a social psychologist with interests in emotion in close relationships and the workplace. My research has focused on people's experiences of, and beliefs about, emotions in romantic and family relationships; emotional intelligence; and the psychology of revenge and forgiveness in close relationships. I am also interested in power dynamics and the expression of emotions such as anger and contempt in the workplace.

Primary Interests:

  • Aggression, Conflict, Peace
  • Emotion, Mood, Affect
  • Interpersonal Processes
  • Organizational Behavior
