How do our close relationships affect how we cope with stressful events?
Prof. Bolger has three areas of research. He studies adjustment processes in close relationships using intensive longitudinal research designs that include diary based reports and physiological measurements. He also studies personality processes as they are revealed in patterns of behavior, emotion, and physiology in daily life. Finally, he is interested in statistical methods for analyzing longitudinal and multilevel data.
