My research interests include the interplay between (implicit) cognitive and emotional processes in general and within affective psychopathology. I also investigate the comorbidity among psychiatric disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD) using the symptom-level approach and mechanisms of change in evidence-based psychotherapies. The ultimate research goals are to inform the conceptualization of psychiatric disorders and to improve psychological interventions.
