Some of her main research interests are Research Methods in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Clinical and Social Psychology, Cognition and Emotion, Cognitive Therapies, Personality, Attention, Attention Training and Education. Her PhD research focused on how personality affects attention to emotional and natural scenes and whether personality can be recognized through the facial structure. She has investigated with the use of eye-tracking equipment how traits such as anxiety/neuroticism and extraversion can affect the attention bias to affective information (negative and positive) and the attention bias towards the face and body. She has also researched whether people can recognize anxiety by simply looking at facial stimuli.
