Research Interest:

My long term research goal is to understand how the brain supports our ability to experience our sense of self. Moreover, I am broadly interested in the psychological and neural mechanisms underlying the interactions of self-awareness, affective experience, and social cognitive processes. I am also interested in understanding how these interactions have implications for physical and mental health outcomes. Specifically, I am currently investigating the neural basis of objective self-awareness and the effects of objective self-awareness on social and affective processes.
