My work is focused around understanding specific negative emotions, and the way they impact (dysfunctional) epistemic reasoning and decision-making in psychopathology. 

I am interested in reflexive emotions, epistemic emotions, and metacognitive feelings, and in the role they play in mental disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. 

I am currently working on defining anxiety as an affective reaction underlying potential threat, doubt, inquiry, and epistemic behaviors. I am interested in the relationship between anxiety and epistemic closure, with regards to compulsive behaviors like checking. 

I am also interested in reflexive emotions and particularly guilt, in relation with agency, responsibility, and the experience of control.
