Veronica Lamarche completed her PhD in Social-Personality Psychology in 2017 at the University at Buffalo, SUNY, in Buffalo, New York. She also holds a B.A. in Psychology (Honours) and Business which she completed in 2010 at the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario. She has been a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex since 2017.
Veronica's research focuses on understanding how people regulate trust and dependence in their romantic relationships, and how feelings of uncertainty or vulnerability can influence relationship stability. Her work is guided by two main research questions: 1) What are the individual differences that predict greater relationship resiliency in the face of uncertainty; and, 2) Do self-regulatory systems managing responses to uncertainty outside of the relationship influence relationship regulatory responses within the relationship.
