Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy


I am a PhD Candidate supervised by Professor Nickola Overall in the REACH Lab. I completed a Bachelor of Social Sciences and Master of Social Sciences at the National University of Singapore.

Research | Current

My research focuses on understanding the dyadic patterns and interpersonal processes that emerge between relationship partners, and how both partners can influence each other to determine relationship outcomes. For example, do both partners need to act in pro-relationship ways to sustain a relationship, can one partner's vulnerabilities drag the other down, or can one partner act as a strong link to buffer the other's vulnerabilities?
