Research

My research interests are in Experimental Psychopathology and Anxiety Disorders, including conditioning models of anxiety and fear; evolutionary vs. acquired models of specific phobias; the causes of perseverative psychopathologies such as pathological worrying and obsessive-compulsive checking; mood-as-input hypothesis and perseverative psychopathologies; embodied emotion and psychopathology; and the role of the disgust emotion in psychological disorders.

I am currently PI on an ESRC-funded 3-year project grant entitled "Mechanisms of catastrophic worrying" (2010-13)
