The primary aim of my research is to understand how social cognition contributes to functioning in individuals with schizophrenia. In my doctoral work I showed that social cognition mediates between neurocognition and functioning. My subsequent work has built on this finding.

In the Social Cognition Training in Schizophrenia study we investigate the effects of a targeted emotion perception program on social cognition and social problem-solving.

The aim of the ecoval study is to link social processes across explanatory levels. In this project standard assessments of social cognition, neurocognition, clinical symptoms and functioning are combined with electrophysiological measures of brain activity and real-world assessments of social behavior using video-ethnography.
