Affect and Motivation

Research Description


Untitled document

I am interested in what gets people going and why sometimes people fail to act to pursue their goals. I aim to understand how emotion and motivation interact to shape human behavior. My current research focuses on neural representations of different costs and benefits and how these representations may shift in disease states such as anxiety and depression.
