Office Hours:

Variable by semester, but always by appointment.

My research program focuses on how people communicatively manage problematic events in the context of personal relationships, specifically how people manage and enact emotions related to revenge and jealousy. Recently, I have begun researching the associations between communication in personal relationships (problematic and otherwise) and physical and emotional well-being.
