Research Statement

My general research interests lie in anxiety and mood disorders and their neural substrates. Here, my research focuses on anticipation, emotional processing and cognitive control strategies. I use psychophysiological and behavioral measures to complement fMRI techniques, and have a strong interest in these methods as well.
