My two areas of research interest are relationships and affective experience. In the former, I am examining ways of improving the skillfulness of support offered by partners, and am studying the processes by which supportive and hindering acts exert their effect in committed couples. In the latter, I study how affect is organized, how different components of it fluctuate over time, and how these different components behave in both distressed and non-distressed groups.

I received my undergraduate education at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, worked on my Ph.D. in clinical and personality psychology at Northwestern University in the years 1995-2000, did my clinical internship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School in the following year, and was a post-doctoral fellow in the Couples Research Laboratory within the social psychology program at NYU.
