Research interests

My lab has been funded by the European Research Council, BBSRC, NIMH, British Academy and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science to explore the Cognitive, Affective and Neural Mechanisms that support self-referential encoding and memory. In addition we are investigating when these processes develop in childhood and how they are affected by cultural differences in self-construal. We have three main theme to our research:


WHAT psychological processes support self-memory biases?

WHERE in the brain are the neural networks that support these memory biases and what mechanisms support self-processing biases in memory?

WHEN do self-memory biases emerge in childhood?
