Leanne K. Knobloch, Ph.D.


I am a professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois. I joined the department in 2002 after earning my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. I also am an alum of St. Norbert College, De Pere, Wisconsin.

My research and teaching interests are in the field of interpersonal communication. I study how people communicate with spouses, dating partners, and family members during times of transition. I teach classes on conflict management, relationship development, and research methods.
