Research Summary

Our representation of our world is largely influenced by individual tendencies - a kind of 'filters' - on information processing: biases in attention allocation, interpretation, and memory define which information we observe (and ignore), how we interpret ambiguous information, and how well we remember certain information. Automatic tendencies to selectively pay attention to negative information while ignoring positive information, to interpret information as negative rather than positive, and to remember negative information better than positive information may render an individual vulnerable to depression or anxiety disorders.

My research focuses on the interplay between information processing biases, genetic factors, and mental health.
