Research

My primary interests center around close relationships, including romantic relationships, family dynamics, and friendships. I am particularly interested in under-studied close relationships. My research has focused on jealousy expression, long-distance relationships (including military marriage), family secrets, and disclosure of HIV status in families. Currently I am working on projects related to stigmatized or difficult disclosures, and using social media (e.g., facebook or twitter) as relationship maintenance. In addition, I have been involved in a few projects exploring ‘dark side’ issues in close relationships, and I have worked on several meta-analyses, covering a wide range of topics.
