  • Christine Perndorfer, Graduate Student

    Graduate Student

    B.S. Psychology, Lehigh University

    Research Interests:

    ​My research interests lie at the interface of clinical, social, and health psychology. Broadly, I am interested in the biopsychosocial factors that influence the mental and physical health and interpersonal functioning of romantic couples. Of particular interest to me is the use of intensive longitudinal methods such as daily diaries to examine daily experiences such as stress, social support, depression, physiological factors, and health behavior in couples coping with stressful life events such as disease diagnosis and coping with chronic illness.
