Dr Kathy Carnelley
Associate Professor in Psychology, University of Southampton.
I conduct research on adult attachment and am interested in affect regulation (e.g., pain reactions, physiological responses, depression), attachment networks, exploring working models of self and others, and finding methods to increase attachment security (e.g., repeated security priming) and well-being.
Dr Erica Hepper
Lecturer in Psychology, University of Surrey
My research examines individual differences in self-relevant emotions and motivation in social context. For example, I am interested in the consequences of self-enhancement motivation and narcissistic personality for interpersonal relationships, the experience and functions of nostalgia within close relationships, and the interplay between attachment orientation and the regulation of self and emotions.

Dr Abigail Millings
Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Behavioural Science and Applied Psychology, Sheffield Hallam University
My research spans relationships, mental health, and the use of technology to promote well-being. The theories that underpin my work include attachment theory and theories of behaviour change. I research include how attachment orientation affects coping, resilience, and mental health, what works best in digital interventions for well-being, and how best to support families undergoing transitions, such as new babies and parental separation. Some of my recent projects include examining the relationship between attachment and mindfulness, and developing a measure of adaptation to relationship dissolution.
