Emotion and Emotion Regulation in Social Contexts

In this line of research I am interested in how emotions shape and are shaped by our social interactions.

In particular I am interested in questions such as

  • Why do we regulate the emotions of others?

  • Are couples that have similar emotional goals more satisfied?

  • How do we best use our social resources to manage our emotional lives?
