Dr. Marroquín is a clinical psychologist and joined the faculty of LMU in 2016. His research examines interpersonal influences on emotion, emotion regulation, and cognitive processing in healthy functioning and mood disorders, particularly within the context of intimate relationships. His current work focuses on the role of relationships in emotional adjustment to major negative events, including cancer diagnosis and treatment, and how effective or ineffective support between partners affects couples' physical and mental health. At LMU, he teaches courses in abnormal psychology, emotion, and statistical methods for psychology.
Dr. Marroquín received his B.A. from New York University in 2002, his M.A. from Hunter College, City University of New York in 2008, and his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2014. He completed his predoctoral clinical internship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL, specializing in treatment of severe mental illness and community mental health, and a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) postdoctoral fellowship in biobehavioral issues in physical and mental health at UCLA.
