Personal profile

My research is concerned with the executive control of memory and how this relates to identity and the social world. In particular I am interested in the extent to which we have control over how particular memories come to mind and whether the ability to forget particular memories associated with events may facilitate changes in affect and may represent one of the means by which forgiveness and reconciliation may occur.

I am also interested in exploring the neural correlates of this executive control process and am also keen to understand how different psychopathologies (including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder) influence the ability to forget emotional material (including emotional words, faces, pictures and autobiographical memory).
