My research interests include embodied and mindfulness-based interventions for highly sensitive children and adults, mindfulness-based interventions at schools, in the workplace and in the healthcare, and theories and models of embodied cognition, i.e., the role the body plays in cognitive and emotional processes, in social interactions, cognition and well-being in the workplace and design, mindfulness compassion, cognitive processes, interplay between brain, body and environment.

Currently, my focus is developing science-based tools and strategies to help other professionals apply mindfulness and embodiment confidently and expertly. I am also working on a research project on environmental sensitivity, self compassion and interoceptive awareness skills in health care professionals and teachers.
