Danielle Menzies-Toman is interested in examining social cognitive and motivational processes in regards to close relationships. More specifically, she is studying both a feedback loop whereby engaging in a relationship maintenance response bolsters the cognitive accessibility of the relationship commitment motive as well as how motives for being in a romantic relationship affect relationship functioning and well being. Her long-term goals are to continue to carry out experimental research as it pertains to relationship science, and to bring the knowledge gained to the practice of marital therapy and to her university teaching.
