Shelly Gable

Research Area

Social Psychology


I began my graduate studies with Dr. Shelly Gable in 2013, and my research is focused on how implicit attitudes and emotion regulation operate within relationships. I am particularly interested in (1) the causes and consequences of implicit relationship attitudes, (2) determining who individuals seek out in their social networks to regulation their emotions, and (3) how culture impacts perceptions of social support. Prior to joining the lab, I worked as an undergraduate with Vivian Zayas at Cornell University and later as lab manager for Laura Carstensen at Stanford University. Outside of the lab, I like to woodwork, drink scotch, and play volleyball, spike ball, and racquetball.
