About me

My current research examines psychological and brain mechanisms of adaptive responding to emotion and consequences for well-being, how emotional disposition is related to biased processing of information, and how cognitive and emotional control change with advancing age.

This work incorporates a wide range of measures of brain (MRI, EEG) and body activity (e.g. skin conductance, heart rate, facial EMG), in addition to recording emotion-linked behaviour and self-reported feeling states.
