My research examines the cognitive-affective processes that regulate behaviors within close relationships. I approach the study of the individual and his/her relationships from a multilevel, interdisciplinary perspective that bridges the study of attachment processes with research on executive control and self-regulation. Most important, I integrate this research within a unifying framework (Zayas, Shoda, & Ayduk, 2002).
