I am a social cognition researcher interested in how thoughts (memories, forecasts, values) shape current and expected emotions. I am interested in what makes future forecasts useful for motivating people and when they, instead, become intrusive and detrimental to performance. I currently investigate why and when mindfulness can equip one with a set of skills that help regulate emotions. I am also keen to understand what helps us act more in line with our internal norms of good or optimal behaviour: what helps us align our motivation and performance with our emotional states, our goals, or our values, and what consequences we are facing when that does not happen.
