Health Psychology
Couples dealing with chronic disease (i.e., dyadic coping)
Health behavior in a dyadic context
Informal caregiving
Intensive longitudinal designs (e.g., couple diary studies)

Illness not only affects patients, but also those who are close to them. To be able to provide adequate health care and psychosocial support, it is important to understand the consequences of illness for daily life, and emotional and social functioning of both patients and their significant others. Accordingly, the research in my lab "Intimate relationships in the face of illness" focuses on three main themes: dyadic coping, health behavior in a dyadic (or couples') context, and informal caregiving.
