Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in the field of behavioural psychopharmacology and animal welfare. I am interested in the links between affective and cognitive processes, especially how learning and memory, decision-making, and reward processing are influenced by the animal’s affective state. My focus is on the neuropsychological mechanisms contributing to the development of the affective biases in the context of the depressive disorder, the neural mechanisms underlying the efficacy of conventional (eg. SSRIs, SNRIs) versus rapid-acting antidepressants (eg. ketamine, psilocybin) utilising translational rodent behavioural models. I am also interested in the development of objective methods for measuring rodents’ affective state and refinement of the techniques used in the behavioural neuroscience to improve animal welfare of the laboratory animals.
