The ultimate goal of my research program is twofold:

(1) to characterize and understand the (neuro-)cognitive and affective processes underlying core aspects of social vision, aversive learning, cognition-emotion interactions, emotional reactivity, and pain perception,

(2) to apply the basic knowledge of core processes obtained from studies of healthy populations to better delineate the dysfunctions of basic (neuro-)cognitive and affective processes in fear, anxiety, and pain.


Main Research Topics:

1. Experimental clinical psychology and affective neuroscience:

  • Biased emotion processing in (Social) Anxiety
  • Electro-cortical correlates of social fear conditioning
  • Neural correlates and differentiation of anticipatory anxiety and phasic fear
  • Contextual influences on face processing

2. Experimental pain research:

  • Affective modulation of pain
  • Affective and cognitive determinants of placebo and nocebo effects
  • Anticipation of pain and its relationship to anxiety
