Lindsey S. Aloia joined the faculty in 2015.
My research focuses on elucidating the causes and consequences of verbal aggression in interpersonal associations. Specifically, I study how qualities of interpersonal interactions, as well as individuals, shape the use of and reactions to verbally aggressive experiences. My work considers consequential communication and illuminates the personal, relational, and health implications of verbal aggression.
