Broadly, Dr. Randall's area of research focuses on understanding couples' interpersonal dynamics. One area of her research focuses on the role of stress in close relationships (e.g. Randall & Bodenmann, 2009). Another area of her work focuses on understanding couples' interpersonal emotion systems. Specifically, she aims to understand how romantic partners' emotions can become coordinated over time, and what implications this may have on individual and relational well-being (e.g. Randall, et al., 2011; Randall et al., in press).
