What We Do 

In Dr. Eastwick's Lab, we study the psychological processes involved in initiating and maintaining romantic relationships.   We use a wide variety of research designs, ranging from longitudinal surveys to experimental methods to speed-dating/online dating.  Below is a list of our research interests; for more information, use the drop down above.    

  • Romantic Partner Preferences
  • Predictors of attraction (e.g., similarity, familiarity, physical attractiveness)
  • Attachment in adult romantic relationships 
  • Mate value
  • Impulse control 
  • Evolutionary perspectives on mating
  • Speed-dating and online dating 
  • Person Perception

Dr. Eastwick will likely be accepting a graduate student to begin in the Fall of 2017.
