Research interests

I am interested in whether and how emotion regulation contributes to mental health. During my PhD I examined neural correlates of abnormal emotion regulation in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) using fMRI and EEG. Using experimental paradigms and ecological momentary assessment (EMA), my current research focuses on how situational factors (e.g., social context) and person variables (e.g., depression, attachment) influence strategy choice and emotion regulation effectiveness.
