Dr. Goodman's research examines how people foster social connection and resilience to adversity. Her work explores daily patterns of coping and barriers to social connection (e.g., social anxiety; rejection), with a focus on people who are vulnerable to social stress. Dr. Goodman’s recent work applies models of resilience to address health disparities in sexual minority adolescents and adults. Her lab uses various smartphone monitoring technologies (e.g., ecological momentary assessment) to examine daily experiences as they unfold in real-time.
