Key research
My research can be broadly categorised into three main areas. The first examines how anxiety psychopathology may be maintained by biases in cognition. The second area investigates the social cognitive difficulties which are associated with autism spectrum. The third area explores the factors which may influence the perception of facial emotion. I am additionally interested in eye tracking technology and its application to the study of mental illness, cognition and its underlying neural mechanisms.
