Research Summary
My research interests sit at the intersections of close relationships, stress, stigma, and health. My primary line of research focuses on how stigma, prejudice, and discrimination constitute minority stress and, as a result, affect the health and well-being of marginalized individuals. I also study how couples psychologically experience intimacy within long-term romantic relationships and how their experience of intimacy affects their health. These two lines of research combine within recent projects examining same-sex couples' experiences of stigmatization and the resulting impact on their relational, sexual, and mental health.
