2016 Keith Rayner Memorial Graduate Student Research Award Winner-Fiona Ge

Congratulations to Fiona Ge, a fourth-year student in the Social Psychology Program working with Dr. Paula Pietromonaco, on being awarded the first annual Keith Rayner Memorial Graduate Student Research Award.

Fiona's project, Cultural Differences in Communication and Consequences for Romantic Relationship Quality, rose to the top of many high-quality submissions reviewed by the Graduate Studies Committee. Fiona's study has implications for identifying culture-specific communication strategies that promote better relationship functioning, thereby informing interventions that can be tailored to couples from different cultural backgrounds.

Thanks to all of the students who submitted the other outstanding proposals. As we all know, there is amazing student research being conducted in this department.

Congratulations again, Fiona, on this well-deserved honor, and the community looks forward to following your progress on this important research!
