I am a PhD student in Ross Cunnington’s lab at UQ, and I am also completing a master in clinical psychology. My research focuses on empathy, or how we share and understand other’s feelings. In particular, I am interested in examining how this process might be affected based on the characteristics of ourselves or that of the target person we are trying to relate to. I have been using a combination of behavioral (e.g., ratings or questionnaires) and brain imaging techniques (i.e., fMRI).
