Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include cognitive processes in psychosis and anxiety disorders. In particular, I am interested in understanding the contributing role of anxiety processes in positive symptoms of psychosis. I am currently looking into the role of responsibility beliefs in psychosis, and specifically in acting or not on command hallucinations. Part of my research investigates these processes on postpartum psychosis, and its impact on the mother/infant relationship. I am also interested in cognitive and behavioural processes involved in obsessive compulsive disoder, and in particular, the role of morality, interoception and imgaery, in driving distress and associated compulsions.
