Research

Research interests

  • Motivation and goal processes in relation to affect and affective disorders
  • Ruminative thinking in clinical and non-clinical populations
  • Ecological momentary assessment

Research projects

My research concerns motivation and goal pursuit in personality and clinical psychology. Considering affect and cognition as motivational systems in the service of self-regulation (e.g., Carver & Scheier, 1998), I conduct basic research on goal pursuit, rumination, affect and affective disorders (particularly depression), and autobiographical memory. I have a particular interest in using ecological momentary assessment to capture people's lived experience, both in healthy and mood disordered populations.

Research networks

Much of my recent research has been conducted in collaboration with Dr Joanne Dickson (Edith Cowan University, Australia) and Dr Stephanos Vassilopoulos (University of Patras, Greece).

I am a member of the Motivation & Affect Regulation Group, an international network of researchers:  https://www.imarg.website/

Research grants

  • 2019 British Academy/Leverhulme
    Promotion/prevention focus and rumination: A multimethod approach
  • 2008 Economic and Social Research Council
