Academic interests: 

Research interests are on self and personality processes in understanding relationships between mental and physical health, coping, social support and health behaviors. Past work has examined spouse caregivers for people with Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Examination of change and stability in psychological processes using an intraindividual variability approach is also a recurrent research theme.
