Main Focus

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 physical environments. Within my current project, I seek to understand  neural and physiological correlates of affective and cognitive effects of one-hour walk in forest versus city, with an aim to influence on the creation of environments optimal for our physical and mental health.
