We all possess our own affective signatures: exploring and experiencing our environment in emotionally idiosyncratic ways. I am interested in elucidating this idea of affective homeostasis and how it allows us to adaptively employ strategies for maneuvering in a complex and uncertain environment.

My research focuses on understanding the neural dynamics of affective homeostasis using EEG as well as using experience sampling methods to track how emotion unfolds over longer time scales. My aim is to understand how affective homeostasis shapes decision making, goal representation, motivational processes as well as affective experiences.
