My research involves the development and application of cognitive-behavioural models to anxiety disorders and related problems. More specifically, I am interested in how people process different kinds of information under different emotional states – and on how this processing is related to behaviour in a variety of different situations. My research has investigated experimental psychopathology of a variety of anxiety and related disorders with emphasis on specific phobia, panic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other interests have included related problems such as depression and impulse control disorders. PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS: Please click on link for lab web page below.
