About me

I currently work as an Academy of Finland Postdoctoral Fellow at the Human Information Processing Laboratory in the Faculty of Social Sciences. My research interests are in the field of social and affective neuroscience, and my research has focused on the neural underpinnings of human emotions. I have studied the neural basis of different emotions and their relationship to subjective experiences of emotion, as well as the flow of emotions during natural interaction. Currently, I lead my research project Decoding Emotions Across Life-span which focuses on the development of emotional experiences and their neural bases. In my research, I combine naturalistic stimuli (such as movies and narratives), brain imaging (mostly fMRI), and pattern classification methods with self-reports and other measures of subjective experiences.
