Rich Slatcher

Richard B. Slatcher received his Ph.D. in social and personality psychology from the University of Texas at Austin in 2007. After completing an NIMH postdoctoral fellowship in health psychology at UCLA, he joined the faculty of the Department of Psychology at Wayne State University, where he is an Associate Professor. Understanding close relationships (e.g., marital relationships, parent-child relationships) and their impact on health and well-being is the focus of his research. He uses a variety of research methodologies (structured laboratory experiments, group interactions, daily diary studies, and behavioral observation), and statistical methods (multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, dyadic data analysis, and meta-analysis) in his work. His research has been supported by more than $10 million in federal and foundation grant support and he has published more than 40 articles and book chapters. He serves on the editorial boards of several journals and his work has been published in many of the top journals in the field, including Science, Psychological Science, and Psychological Bulletin. In addition to his research and teaching, he chairs a transdisciplinary group of more than 50 faculty across 20 departments at Wayne State: Researchers of Biobehavioral health in Urban Settings Today (RoBUST).
