Personal profile

Research Interests

I am an experimental psychologist and the primary aim of my research is to understand cognitive and affective changes associated with psychopathology, most notably depression and eating disorders. The key psychological processes that I am interested in are memory (especially autobiographical memory) and social cognition (especially processing of facial emotion).  Other areas of expertise include: alexithymia (particularly in association with psychopathology, and influence on emotion processing) and cognitive changes observed in older adults.
