Kort presentation

I am a post-doc at the Emotional Mental Imagery Lab and am involved in both experimental and clinical studies. I have a background in experimental psychology and neuroscience and am broadly interested in emotion, emotion regulation, and emotional mental imagery. During my PhD I have worked on cognitive biases, particularly on how attention bias and optimism bias interact und mutually enforce each other.
