Denise H. Solomon

Department Head and Distinguished Professor, Communication Arts and Sciences

Denise Solomon is a Liberal Arts Professor of Communication Arts & Sciences with expertise in interpersonal communication. Her research focuses on communication experiences in personal relationships, such as support and conflict, that enhance or erode well-being. Relational turbulence theory, which Denise was central in developing, has been used to gain insight into a wide range of phenomena, such as how people experience breast cancer survivorship, cope with infertility, and navigate post-deployment military family life. Her role on the Executive Committee involves provision of strategic advice, especially regarding the interface between the CSSI and the Department of Communication Arts & Sciences (where the CSSI is housed).
