Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

My work focuses on the cognitive control mechanisms involved in autobiographical retrieval. I am interested in whether disruptions to these processes contribute to dysfunctional autobiographical memory tendencies in disorders such as depression, and/or to more extreme disorders of memory such as psychogenic amnesia.

I am also investigating whether disrupted autobiographical memory processes can be targetted clinically to improve the efficacy of existing psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy.
