I am interested in the effects of emotions on cognition particularly the influence of mood on memory. Any given mood state appears to have an influence on cognitive processing. Mood affects memory, what we think and remember matches our mood state (mood congruity). My research will focus on emotion regulation in adolescence and adulthood as well as how mood states affect memory processes using behavioural, physiological and neuroimaging methods to provide insight into link between emotion, mood and memory in adolescence and adulthood.
