PhD Candidate

Ellen is currently a PhD Student in the Centre for Health and Coping Studies with Dr. Anita DeLongis. She is interested in understanding the interpersonal processes surrounding how people come together to cope with stress and maintain their health and wellbeing. Much of her work takes a dyadic approach to coping, using data collected from both members of a couple to examine the ways in which partners influence each other throughout the coping process. She is interested in how couples cope with chronic illness as well as how they can encourage the prevention of illness and the maintenance of adaptive health behaviours.
