James (Jim) McNulty is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Tennessee where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in social psychology, research methods, and intimate relationships. He received his Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Florida in 2001 under the tutelage of Benjamin Karney. Through his research, McNulty attempts to understand why initially positive relationship beliefs so frequently become less positive over time. In pursuit of this goal, he has published numerous empirical papers addressing how factors such as expectancies, attributions, forgiveness, and behavior are related to the way marriages develop over time. McNulty was honored with the Early Career Award by the Relationship Researchers Interest Group within the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in 2009 and currently serves as a Consulting Editor for the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and the Journal of Family Psychology.
