Salvaggio, Amy (full)
Associate Professor
Arts & Sciences
Harugari Hall

    Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Dr. S. graduated from Penn State, then attended the University of Maryland for her graduate degrees. While finishing her Ph.D., she worked for a research firm in Washington DC and taught undergraduate research methods (and learned quite a bit about balancing multiple job roles along the way).

    After finishing her dissertation with the incomparable Benjamin Schneider, she was an assistant professor at the University of Tulsa for five years, where she became interested in studying dual-earner couples and workplace romance. She maintains an active research program on these issues, and also enjoys collaborating with colleagues on a wide range of topics including reading motivation, customer service, and teacher mentoring. At UNH she has enjoyed teaching graduate and undergraduate classes, and supervises many internships and practicum projects.
