Katherine Von Culin
Broadly, I study emotion in the context of close relationships, including romantic relationships, friendships and family relationships. I am interested in the experience, expression and regulation of emotion in dyads. For instance, to whom do we express our emotions? Is it always best to express emotion to close partners or can suppression be beneficial to oneself or ones partner in certain circumstances? How do partners regulate emotion for each other and do we choose whom to express emotion to based on others’ ability to help us regulate our own emotions? I am also interested in flexible shifting of attentional focus within a relationship and how implicit attitudes may change in response to different interpersonal goals.
