I’m interested in understanding how our brain and cognition play a role in our eating habits and decisions. I use electroencephalography (EEG) research methods to examine the neural mechanisms of food-related cognition, such as the reward value of food, the attention we give towards food, and if we can inhibit dominate responses to eat food. Specifically, I test if food-related cognition differs by nutritional characteristics of food (e.g., calorie or sugar content), by individual characteristics (e.g., weight, eating tendencies), and if food-related cognition can be improved by external factors (e.g., exercise, sleep, diet, cognitive interventions).
