Research Interests

Marci Gleason’s research focuses on how transitions or stressful contexts influence both individual and relationship processes. Currently she is investigating the role of social support in regulating emotion, health, and relationship functioning as couples become first time parents. Other topics of interest to her are: 1) how family togetherness influences important couple and parenting outcomes, 2) how pathological personality traits present in older adults, 3) the influence of personality disorders on health and relationship functioning as individuals age, and 4) how intensive longitudinal designs can be used to better understand both between and within person processes.
