It is quite apparent that we live in a society which is now more connected than ever before. It comes as no surprise then that studying human social behaviour is critically important. I have always been keenly interested in the mysterious forces pulling the strings in our social interactions. I am interested in studying different aspects of interpersonal relationships, because at the end of the day, our interactions with others are extremely important to us. For instance, what are the factors involved in creating or dissolving friendships and romances? Why do we commit to certain relationships and not others? To be more specific, my research interests include attraction, romantic love, motivation, attachment, friendships and affiliative behaviours and how these interact within the framework of social psychology.
