I am a professor of psychology at the University of Western Ontario. The research being conducted in my lab focuses on a variety of topics relating to the different stages of romantic relationships (e.g,. interpersonal attraction, relationship formation, and relationship maintenance). We adopt a few different theoretical perspectives in this research, including Attachment Theory, the Ideal Standards Model, theories of self-enhancement and self-verification, and evolutionary theories of human mating (e.g., Sexual Strategies Theory; Strategic Pluralism Theory).
