Kaufman Hall Room 168


Professor Larson's research is in the area of social psychology. In particular, she examines the social cognition of close relationships, including how members of intimate relationships can help (or hinder) one another in regulating their emotions and pursuing their goals. Most recently, she has begun to examine implicit attitudes toward romantic partners, and how this index can offer distinct insights compared to explicit reports of relationship satisfaction.
