An experimental psychologist and a neuroscientist - postdoctoral research fellow at the Systems Neuroscience and Pain Laboratory.
My research aims to elucidate the bio-psycho-social mechanisms that underlie affective states such as anger and pain, and how they manifest in health and illness. My overarching goal is to benchmark these mechanisms in order to reduce suffering, and to promote adaptive responding and pro-social behavior.
I combine basic and clinical research in humans from a social, cognitive, and affective neuroscience perspective: incorporating psychological theory with biological constraints, integrating multi-modal/multi-level research methods and analytics, and utilizing behavioral, psychophysiological, neuroimaging, and neuromodulation techniques, as well as psychometric assays and patient-reported outcomes.
