About Me

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Human Development and Family Studies at Penn State. My research tends to focus on couple and coparenting relationships, especially around the transition to parenthood, the influence of having and raising children on parents, and the interaction of media and family life. My family is very important to me, and I love going home every day to my wonderful wife and children. For more information on my specific research interests, click on "Interests" above.
