My research brings theories of identity, group processes, and emotion together to improve our understanding of group cohesion, loyalty, leadership, influence, and identity/identification. For the most part, I am interested in how individuals make decisions about their voluntary memberships in groups and the ramifications these decisions have on their (social) self-concepts. I also examine how self and identity processes contribute to intimate-partner violence, self-harm, and suicide. Some of my recent work involves the use of vocal fundamental frequency (VFF) accommodation as an indicator of one’s internalized status beliefs and others’ collective validation of status claims.
