Amanda Szczesniak



I am currently a first year Doctoral Student in the Social-Personality Psychology program. My research interests broadly focus on how our experiences in romantic relationships shape our self-perception, which in return impact relationship functioning. I work under the guidance of Dr. Stephanie Spielmann in the Relationships and Individual Differences Lab, where we examine how insecurities influence maladaptive behaviors in relationships.
