My research focuses on the factors that determine success and failure of social relationships. Who are better capable of maintaining healthy relationships (including with a romantic partner), and what are the relationship-specific processes that characterise a well functioning relationship.

I have focused in particular on the role of executive control (inhibitory control), and more recently on the role of mindfulness, and how they affect a number of relationship processes (such as forgiveness; sacrifice; coping with attractive alternatives)
