A core goal of our research is to better understand emotion dynamics in intimate relationships and the family, and what role they play for the longer term development of psychological and physical health. Further research interests are the investigation of different contextual and individual factors that modulate such processes, such as culture, social network and stress. 

The aim of our research is to add to a better understanding of the factors and processes that contribute to well - functioning family and couple life, one of the most important requirements for well - being, physical and psychological health and resilience. In this sense, we adopt a clinical psychological perspective in our work, however drawing from various related disciplines and psychological strands.
