Ph.D. Candidate, University of Toronto
Samantha Joel is a Ph.D. candidate in the Psychology Department at the University of Toronto. Her research examines how people make decisions about their romantic relationships. For example, which factors do people take into consideration when they try to decide whether to pursue a potential date, invest in a new relationship, or break up with a romantic partner? Through studying how people navigate these relationship turning points, Samantha hopes to uncover useful decision strategies that will ultimately lead to happier, healthier relationships.
