Research Interests


Broadly, my research interests encompass emotion-cognition interactions and their associated neural mechanisms. Moreover, I aim to elucidate the role that healthy aging and individual differences play in modulating the interplay between emotional (affective) and cognitive processes.


Research Description


Currently, I utilize neuropsychological assessments to assess basic cognitive abilities and electroencephalographic techniques to describe the time-course of affective and cognitive processes. In the near future, I will incorporate functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to shed light on the extensive functional and structural connections between brain regions responsible for cognitive and emotional processing.
