My research focuses on identifying cognitive distortions that drive emotional and behavioural dysregulation in mood and anxiety disorders. Specifically, I am investigating the presence and consequences of biases in sensory-perceptual mental representations (imagination-based cognition) of anticipated future emotional events, and how the modification of such biases can promote healthier emotions and behaviours that improve well-being.
