My research deals with emotion regulation, or the question how people can get a grip on their feelings. Most of this research takes place at the Amsterdam Emotion Regulation Lab, where I work together with a team of researchers. A major focus of our lab is on the role of bodily processes in emotion regulation, like touch, posture, or arm movements, as well as physiological aspects of emotion regulation. We are also interested in implicit emotion regulation, coping with existential concerns, and individual differences such as action versus state orientation and alexthymia. Because our Lab is part of a Clinical Psychology Program, we are trying to develop clinical applications of emotion regulation research.
