PhD, Year 1
My research interests revolve around how people foster social connection. I am fascinated by how individual differences, like personality traits, can interact with interpersonal factors to sustain well-being in relationships and singlehood. My other interests include how individuals maintain meaning in life, magnanimity, and resilience through social connections.
