Family Research Lab

Welcome to the Family Research Lab!

Our goal is to better understand parent-child interaction and children’s well-being. We are particularly interested in emotions — emotional expression and regulation, emotion socialization, stress, conflict, and closeness in family relationships. If you are interested in participating in one of our studies, please see our Current Studies page. If you are interested in joining the lab, see our Student Opportunities page for more information and an application.

We are currently inviting families with a 3- to 5-year-old child to participate in a paid research study exploring parents’ daily experiences and family mealtime interactions. Please contact us for more information about this project at [email protected]. We are also currently looking for mothers with adolescents between 14-to 18-years-old to participate in a paid research study exploring parent-adolescent communication.
