Social Emotions Relationships and Health Research Lab

Sarah Arpin, Ph.D.

The Social Emotions, Relationships, and Health Research Lab examines how social connectedness impacts health, via emotions and behavior. Much of our research focuses on the experiences of loneliness, social support, and intimacy. Specifically, we explore how these variables influence health behaviors (e.g., alcohol use, sleep), social interactions, and psychological well-being.
