The CoRe research group is engaged in the scientific study of emotion, emotion-regulation, and relationship processes and their impact on our daily life. Our projects include the development of romantic relationships, emotional synchrony, interpersonal emotion regulation, modeling interpersonal emotional processes, adult attachment, behavioral systems, and health behavior, and moral decisions. You can find out more at the “Projects” link above.
We study with individuals, couples, and families using a multi-method approach that includes measurement of vocal behaviors, autonomic physiology, observation of behavior, and repeated self-reports (e.g., daily diary) taken in real time over periods ranging from minutes to days. We use statistical approaches that are optimal for modeling data of this complexity including multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, and time series methods.
