Website: Dr. Davis' Teaching and Research
I have three research areas: close relationships, conservation psychology, and educational psychology. My first research interest is examining processes related to relationship maintenance, such as forgiveness and attitude alignment. My second research interest is examining antecedents and consequences of felt commitment to the natural environment. My third research interest is examining the psychology of teaching and learning.
