My current research examines the cognitive-affective processes that regulate behaviors within close relationships and which may affect the quality of relationship functioning and individual’s mental health. My research approaches the study of the individual and his or her relationships from a multi-level interdisciplinary perspective that integrates the study of attachment processes, research on executive control and self-regulation, and methodology and theory from cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
