Our Research

In the Self and Interpersonal Dynamics (SAID) lab, we study the interplay of the self and interpersonal relationships. All research within the SAID lab adopts a Person x Situation interactionist perspective wherein both the person (e.g., self-esteem) and the situation (e.g., seeking social support) are included. Across various projects, we utilize a diverse array of methodologies, including online correlational studies, in lab experiments, dyadic interactions, longitudinal assessments, and meta-analyses.
