My research interests include: 1) how the individual decides whether to express his/her emotions or not to other people around him/her, 2) regret and ambivalence over emotional expressiveness, 3) adult attachment in close relationships, and 4) how information is shared and relayed within triads and how that affects the individual who receives the second-hand information.

Research Interests:
  • Information relay within triads
  • Emotion and adult attachment
  • Positive emotions
  • Close relationships
