Associate Professor

BSc (UPEI); MSc, PhD (Dalhousie)

My research focuses primarily on people's perceptions of and responses to key positive and negative events in close relationships. In addition, I am working in the area of understanding and promoting resilience in the face of set-backs and tragedy in everyday life. I have a particular interest in using mixed methodology approaches to enhance our understanding of these important social phenomena.
