Research interests

I’m broadly interested in the relationship between our sense of bodily self and social cognition i.e. how we interact with others.
Specifically, how interoception (the perception of signals from within the body) contributes to one’s concept of self and how this in turn interacts and influences affective and cognitive empathy. I attempt to answer these scientific questions using both behavioral and neuroimaging techniques and looking at both neurotypical groups as well as clinical populations who demonstrate alterations or impairments in the relevant dimensions of perception or cognition.
