Amanda Gesselman
Research Statement

Amanda is a Social Psychologist with a focus on interactions within a romantic couple. She examines factors influencing decision-making in relationship contexts, and the social or health-related consequences resulting from those choices.

Her predoctoral work included research focused on perceived cues that influence relationship-relevant decisions, how past relationship experiences (or lack thereof) influence future relationship prospects, how forming and investing in romantic relationships affects our ability to maintain social ties with others, and how the goals driving our interactions with a partner may create a beneficial or detrimental relationship environment.

Amanda’s postdoctoral research will continue to focus on goals for—and decisions made within—dyadic interactions, and the resulting social and health-related consequences.
