Research Interests (Downloadable Reprints Below)

In the Northwestern Self-Control and Relationships Lab, we conduct research in three primary domains. Here, we list these domains and provide examples of questions that guide our research in each of them:

1. Initial Romantic Attraction: What predicts interpersonal attraction? Do people really know what characteristics they desire in a romantic partner? How do dating innovations like speed-dating and online dating influence the romantic initiation process? [Sample Publication]

2. Interpersonal Conflict: When do people forgive transgressions? What are the consequences of forgiving? When does conflict escalate to the point of violence? Can we intervene to ameliorate the adverse effects of conflict in marriage? [Sample Publication]

3. Self-Control: When and how do interpersonal processes bring out the best vs. the worst in us? What types of social interaction cause us to feel energized versus exhausted? How do self-control processes influence relationship functioning and eating behavior? [Sample Publication]
