My research examines emotion experience and regulation in common mental health problems, using a combination of cognitive-experimental, neuroimaging and psychophysiological methods. The eventual goal of this work is to help develop novel emotion regulation interventions to supplement existing therapeutic strategies. I work under the supervision of Tim Dalgleish and in collaboration with other members of the emotion research group at the CBU. I am based four days a week at the CBU in Cambridge and one day a week as a clinical psychologist in London, where I practice cognitive behavioural therapy and cognitive analytic therapy in an adult mental health setting. I am also an honorary lecturer at the Sub Department of Clinical Health Psychology at University College London, where I supervise the research dissertations of trainee clinical psychologists.
