My research focuses on characterising the cognitive effects associated with psychopharmacological substances and neuropsychiatric conditions.

My current research project involves the development of brain correlates in patients who recently had a subarachnoid haemorrhage. We are trying to improve the prediction of the occurrence of side-effects in the early days after the haemorrhage, which can help in quicker treatment of side-effects. My research methods include psychopharmacology, electro-encephalogram (EEG), transcranial doppler (TCD), and neuropsychological testing.

My previous research includes projects on characterising individual differences in the neurocognitive effects of drugs of abuse and addictive behaviours. I furthermore worked on establishing cognitive and EEG markers in the prediction of response to pharmacological treatment of depression and ADHD.
