Research Statement

I am interested in how experimental and neural measures of cognitive control relate to self-control performance/dysfunction in people’s everyday lives, and how this relationship is affected by other intrapersonal factors. My research includes clinical and non-clinical populations and is based on methods such as fMRI, experimental paradigms, and experience sampling.
