As a member of the Cognition, Emotion, and Mental Health Programme my research focuses on understanding the association between cognitive functioning and emotional experience. I am especially interested in the role of cognitive control in emotion regulation and how emotion regulation might be aided by training executive control.

I am further interested in how the interplay between cognitive control and emotion regulation is shared/differs across emotional disorders such as depression and posttraumatic stress disorder.
