Research

Research Interests

Prospective Memory

I am particularly interested in the differences between event-based and time-based prospective memory, in terms of underlying cognitive processes.

Emotion-Cognition interactions

Effects of emotionally charged material on cognition, as well as affective states (mood).

Everyday life cognition

Studying cognitive processing outside the lab, in naturalistic settings.

Neuroscience

Neural basis of cognition.

Current Research

I am currently doing research on the effects of mood and aging on different Prospective Memory tasks (event- and time-based), in the laboratory and in everyday life, under the supervision of Dr. Katharina Schnitzspahn and Prof. Louise Phillips.
