Hello and Welcome!

The Relationship Science Lab is led by Dr Veronica Lamarche, a Social Psychologist and Lecturer (Assistant Professor) studying motivated cognition in romantic relationships at the University of Essex.  

Our research tackles the big question "What makes some couples more resilient in the face of uncertainty and vulnerability?", with a particular interest in the individual differences and situational factors that make it easier for some people to cope with feelings of uncertainty and vulnerability compared to others.
