Short 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.

My courses


I obtained my PhD in 2018 at the Institute of Psychology, University of Bern, Switzerland, working with Professor Tatjana Aue. During my PhD I completed a 3-months research stay at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, working with Professor Erno Hermans. Prior to joining the Emotional Mental Imagery Lab (EMIL) at Uppsala University with an Early Postdoc.Mobility Fellowship awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, I worked with Professor Emily Holmes as a postdoctoral researcher at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
