Research and teaching
My research interests lie primarily in the area of cognition and various psychopathological states; notably depression. Within this broad area I have conducted research on topics such as cognitive assessment in depression, the interactive role of cognition and life events in the causation of depression, the capability of assessment tools to differentiate anxiety from depression, and description of stable and unstable aspects of cognition associated with depression. Another aspect of my interest in cognitive models is the question of their therapeutic relevance. I have pursued this interest through studies examining cognitive therapy for depression, as well as training and process studies in cognitive therapy.
