Amie M. Gordon, Ph.D. is a post-doctoral scholar at the University of California, San Francisco. Her research is driven by two main questions: (1) How do prosocial thoughts, feelings and actions help people thrive in their romantic relationships, and (2) how do basic biological factors, such as lack of sleep, prevent people from being prosocial? She received her Ph.D. and M.A. in Social/Personality Psychology from UC Berkeley and her B.A. in Psychology from UCLA.
Amie’s research has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science, and the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
In addition to blogging about relationships, Amie creates programs focused on helping people thrive in their romantic relationships for the well-being app Mindsail.
