Research interests

My research focuses on the cognitive mechanisms that contribute to common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. I use experimental techniques from cognitive psychology and functional neuroimaging to to explore how these mechanisms may be modified to reduce anxiety and improve mood. I use epidemiological investiagtions to understand how dsyfunctional cognitions arise. I also work with clinical data from randomised controlled trials to investiagte factors associated with response to cognitive behavioural therapy. I am interested in applying the insights gained from my experimental work to improve cognitive-based intervention for patients in primary care.
