Welcome to The Relationship Research Lab!

Intuition suggests that strong intimate relationships play a vital role in our health and well-being. Empirical research not only supports this perspective, but also demonstrates that the influence of positive relationships may be more wide-ranging and far-reaching than we imagined. In our research, we investigate the ways in which intimate relationships impact people’s ability to respond to a range of stressors and challenges in their lives and how the relationships, themselves, are changed by such experiences.
