Grace graduated magna cum laude with dual Bachelor degrees in Communication and Psychology from the University of Southern California, and later with a Masters degree in General Psychology from New York University. She is now a Social Psychology doctoral student under the advisement of Professor Benjamin Karney at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Grace is generally interested in the trajectory of romantic relationships, and why some relationships fail while others succeed. She makes use of advanced quantitative methods to better understand the roles of internal psychological processes as well as external (social and environmental) forces that can affect marital quality and longevity in the early years of marriage. Grace's sub-interests include social network analysis, person perception processes, the effects of our relationships on health outcomes, as well as statistical and research methodology.
