Areas of Interest

My research focuses on brain mechanisms of adaptive responding to emotion and consequences for well-being, how emotion regulatory skill changes across the lifespan and how age-related changes in brain structure impact brain function. Measures of brain imaging (MRI, EEG) and peripheral psychophysiology (e.g. facial EMG, skin conductance, heart rate) in addition to behavioural measures and self-reports are used in this endeavour. Other interests include how emotion modulates attention allocation and how an individual's disposition biases the evaluation of emotion-relevant information. Our research is funded by EU FP7, British Academy, BBSRC and ESPRC, and through collaboration with industry.
