Dr. Marissa Mosley

As an Assistant Professor in the Marriage and Family Therapy program, my experience looks to continue bridging the gap between research and clinical application. My research focuses on technology use in relationships, informed by attachment theory and systems theory. I have researched cyber dating abuse, phone snubbing (phubbing), catfishing, and efficacy of couples therapy. Using primarily quantitative analysis, I utilize dyadic data analysis to more effectively implement results in the field of marriage and family therapy. My recent work explores the role of phubbing in couples satisfaction for both partners and exploring friendship building and maintenance through video games.
