My primary roles are conducting research and teaching. I also enjoy helping graduate students understand statistics.
The relationship consequences of financial financial behaviors and issues.
- What happens to newlywed's marital satisfaction as they pay off their consumer debt? What happens if they assume more debt?
- How are cohabiting couples' disagreements over finances related to their relationship stability relative to other types of disagreements?
- How has the recession influenced couples' relationships, and what can they do about it?
Time-use, marital relationships, and parenting. Examples:
- How has the amount of time that married couples spend together has changed over the past four decades?
- How do couples' time changes that occur when they become parents influence their marriage quality?
- How do individuals' feelings about family life influence their marital quality and likelihood of divorce?
