I am a social psychologist interested in how thoughts (memories, forecasts, values) shape current and expected emotions. My research belongs to the fields of social cognition and applied social psychology. The topics I currently investigate are: whether mindfulness can provide skills that help people regulate future-orientated emotions, whether trust can explain political partisanship, and what helps us align our motivation and performance with our emotional states, goals, and values, and with what consequences.
