Postdoc in Psychology

University of Washington

I am currently a postdoc at the University of Washington. Together with Dr. Kevin King, I study how emotions affect people’s ability to self-regulate their behavior. Mainly, we study the way emotions shape people’s decision to consume (more) alcohol. More generally, I am interested in mechanistic explanations of people’s subjective experience of the world and decision-making.
