I completed my Ph.D. in psychology at New York University (2006) and post-doctoral training in the Social Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Columbia University (2006-08). I then served as a senior researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet (2008-10), where I am an Associate Professor in Psychology since 2011.

Broadly, my research aims at better understanding emotional learning and regulation in social situations. More specifically, I am interested in the neural mechanisms underlying the acquisition, maintenance and change of fears and aversions of other individuals, and how these processes depend on social cognition and social interaction.
