My research interests are in the areas of Close Relationships and Social Cognition. My dissertation research has examined how people's approach and avoidance goals for engaging in pro-relationship behaviors (such as sacrificing for one's romantic partner) influence expectations of reciprocity and relationship evaluations. In a separate line of research I have examined how people's need to feel certain about their romantic relationship underlies positive illusions. I have also examined the ways in which positive illusions sustain relationship satisfaction.
