Positions

Overview

  • My research focuses on romantic relationship development and dissolution. Using primarily qualitative methods, my research explores how relationship experiences are contextualized by socioeconomic status, education level, family structure background, developmental stage, and co-residential status. I am particularly interested in identifying disparities in partnering experiences between young adults from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
