Personal profile

Research interests

I joined Bond University in 2019 as an Assistant Professor of Psychology. Prior to my engagement at Bond University, I held research positions at The University of Sydney, and The University of New South Wales. I completed my PhD at The University of New South Wales. Before this, I studied psychology at The University of Auckland.
My research focuses on the neural mechanisms and correlates of emotional, motivational, and cognitive function. The overall goal of my research is the identification of risk factors for mild cognitive decline and emotional dysfunction, and ways to reduce their impact.
My current research agenda encompasses five broad areas;
  1. Temporally and psychologically discrete aspects of reward processing
  2. The motivational, cognitive, and social functions of nostalgia
  3. Self-regulation and decision making in emotional contexts
  4. Meta-cognition about affective states
  5. Neural noise/aperiodic neural activity, cognitive function, and healthy aging
