- Consciousness, Cognition, Psychopathology
DPhil candidate interested in consciousness, awareness and metacognition in psychopathology
My research focusses on how conscious and subconscious processes contribute to the aetiology, development and manifestation of specific symptoms of psychopathology, in particular delusions and other symptoms of psychosis.
Using a combination of psychophysical tasks and computational modelling,
I am aiming to dissociate different levels of conscious and subconscious perceptual,
affective and higher-order cognitive processing,
and to determine their independent and shared contributes to psychiatric disorders.
Furthermore, theoretically and empirically, I am interested in the function of consciousness and metacognition as well as ecological, embedded and dynamic approaches of testing and modelling those.
