Dr. Halford and alumna collaborate on research

Professors do not always conduct research on their own, nor is it required to have a doctorate to engage in research. Undergraduate and graduate students do research, too!

Earlier this month, Dr. Jeff Halford presented two research papers at the International Association for Relationship Research Conference in Louisville, KY.

AARRconfThe first study, titled “The Halo Effect: Real vs. Perceived Traits Associated with Facial Symmetry,” was a collaboration with Samantha Bissell ’09, an alumna of Keene State College who is now getting a Master’s degree in psychology from City University of New York. The second study, titled “Less Satisfied but More Committed? How the Presence of Children Affects Marital Outcomes,” was based on Dr. Halford’s ongoing research program in marital communication and family planning.
