Active researcher, with a focus on emotional disorders (and particularly depression). In this research I focus on the process of recalling past experiences and thinking about the future, and how this interacts with things like anticipating pleasure, pursing goals that are important to us, our self-concept, and solving the problems in our lives. I study the interaction between mental illnesses and these abilities, and develop and test interventions to improve mental health.
