Research Areas

Visuo-spatial short term memory
Social neuroscience

I am interested in electrophysiological correlates of social cues, including race and trustworthiness.
In particular I have explored the time-course of empathic neural response to pain of own and other-race individuals. My latest research focuses on the dissociation between experience sharing and mentalizing, two main components of empathy.
