Research interests

I am interested in:

  • how thoughts (memories, forecasts, values) shape current and expected emotions and behaviour
  • how people regulate their future-orientated emotions (e.g. whether mindfulness helps build such skills; whether reflective vs. restorative nostalgia shape future-orientated emotions differently) and what are the consequences on future-oriented behaviour (e.g., mitigating climate change now)
  • what is political trust, whether trust can explain political partisanship, and whether trust in experts can improve trust in politicians affiliated with the experts.
