My main research interests lie at the intersection of cognitive, clinical, and personality research domains using neuroimaging methods (structural and functional MRI). More specifically, I am interested in examining brain-behaviour relationships that underpin resilience to mental disorders, and the influence of behavioural and personality variables that may modulate such relationships. These may include cognitive and emotional factors, such as executive functioning and facial emotion processing, and personality factors, such as schizotypal personality.
Research areas: cognitive neuroscience, mental wellbeing, resilience, schizotypy, emotion processing, reward and motivation.
