I am psychologist with an MSc in Clinical and Health Psychology. Most of my experience and interest relate to the interaction of affective, motivational, learning processes and behavioral responses, including those involved in clinical population. My bachelor and previous Master´s thesis were related to cognitive processes (cognitive reactivity) and their relation to affect in depression. Currently, my MSc project in Cognitive Neuroscience will focus on examining how temporary stress affects the optimisms bias in healthy subjects and specifically, will explore if stress, physiologically measured, affects the selective updating bias towards positive information.
