My main research interests focus on how the environment shapes our brain, more specifically, how being exposed to nature and urban environment influences stress, emotions, and cognitive processes. I am especially interested in neural mechanisms underlying these effects, as well as in physiological processes during exposure to different environments. Using fMRI and physiological measures I seek to understand neural and physiological correlates of affective and cognitive effects of one-hour walk in nature versus urban environment, with an aim to influence on the creation of environments optimal for our physical and mental health.
