Expertise

My research interests mainly concern interpersonal understanding and collaboration.

Do we know how others react in certain situations?

Do we know about our partner's preferences?

How is deciding for the self different from deciding for someone else?

What are the benefits of knowing each other well for communication and collaboration?

But also interpersonal processes in general interest me.

What makes romantic relationships work?

How do others influence our decisions?
