Personal profile

Roles and responsibilities

Research Fellow at the Centre for the Advancement of Research on Emotion, within the School of Psychological Science.

Research interests

My research aims to enhance understanding of how patterns of cognitive information processing, such as biases in the processing of emotional information, characterise and contribute to variation in emotional vulnerability, with a focus on anxiety vulnerability, and fear.

Current projects

  • Understanding the association between state emotion and biases in information processing.
  • Patterns of approach and avoidance behaviours and their modification in elevated fear.
  • Investigating biases in the processing of negative and emotional information and their relation to attentional control and anxiety vulnerability.
  • Improving measurement of biases in emotional information processing, and control of attentional processes, known to characterise anxiety and elevated anxiety vulnerability.

Previous positions

Previously held positions in the UWA School of Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences contributing to conduct of randomised controlled trials for cognitive interventions to attenuate depression in people with dementia.


I serve on the Editorial Board of The International Journal of Cognitive Therapy, and serve as reviewer on a wide range of journals.
