My interest is in the neural correlates of emotion regulation, especially pathological anxiety regulation, and how anxiety influences decision-making in various contexts. I am also interested in exploring potential philosophical implications of psychopathology and neuroscience research on the mind-body problem, the free will versus determinism debate, as well as moral responsibility and the legal system.
