My research lies at the intersection of social, personality and clinical psychology with a focus on emotional functioning in daily life. I study how feelings fluctuate from moment-to-moment and how people try to influence or regulate their emotions in everyday situations, and try to understand how these emotional processes are linked with well-being and adjustment.
I'm currently a lecturer and ARC Discovery Early Career Research fellow working in the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences. I also hold an honorary research position in the Research Group for Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences at KU Leuven - University of Leuven (Belgium).
