I am interested in examining mechanisms that are involved in human behaviour and affective/cognitive processes, the relationships between these constructs, and how they affect emotional and developmental trajectories in both healthy and clinical populations. I completed my PhD on schizotypal personality at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, which focused on nonclinical individual differences that lead to differential behavioural and neural manifestations (using fMRI, sMRI, and EEG). This was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in experimental psychology/neuroscience at Ghent University, Belgium, where I examined the neural overlap between motivational and emotional processes using fMRI. I am now currently working in the Gatt Resilience Group based at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), examining the question of what makes some people more resilient to adversity compared to others. In particular, I am interested in how variability in mental wellbeing and resilience may be observed on both behavioural and neural levels across the lifespan, and the factors that contribute to such variability, including genetic and environmental contributions.

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.
