Emily adopts diverse methods to capture the interplay between social attitudes and relationship processes as they unfold over the course of social interactions and people’s lives, including behavioural observation, daily diary and experience sampling methods, speed dating paradigms, and longitudinal designs to assess interpersonal processes as they naturally occur and influence people’s wellbeing and attitudes across time. These sophisticated methods are complemented by complex statistical techniques, such as multi-level and dyadic modelling.
Read here, here and here about some of Emily’s examining how and why sexist attitudes produce aggression in relationships.
