ABOUT ME

I’m a lecturer in the Department of Psychology, at Royal Holloway University of London.

I am interested in understanding how we make decisions and how we come to feel in control of our actions and their consequences, i.e. have a sense of agency. Our experience of agency is foundational toour societal notions of responsibility and freedom of choice.

Using behavioural, computational, and neuroimaging methods, I investigate influences on learning and decision-making, e.g. due to distracting stimuli, freedom of choice, confidence in a decision (aka metacognition), and how these also interact with our sense of agency. Moreover, I'm starting to explore how  these (meta)cognitive processes may become maladaptive and underlie psychiatric symptoms, such as depression.
