I study how people adjust, both emotionally and physically, to the major and minor problems of daily life. Many of the challenges people face occur in the context of close relationships, and a central focus of my research has been to examine adjustment processes in intimate dyads. Similarly, the ways that people experience and adjust to stressful events are shaped by relatively enduring patterns of coping. For this reason I am also interested in the role of personality processes in adjustment. Finally, to study processes of adjustment in both laboratory and natural settings, I use intensive longitudinal designs and statistical models that take advantage of those designs. I teach courses on adult relationships, social relationships and health, the general linear model, and analysis of change.
