Caroline Durlik

Educational background:

I studied at the University of Toronto from 2007 to 2011 and in the summer of 2011 I obtained an Honours BSc with a specialization in Psychology. I then joined Royal Holloway, University of London in the autumn of 2011 in order to pursue a PhD in Experimental Psychology.

Research Interests:

My research focuses on the role of body awareness in emotional experience. I am primarily interested in interoceptive awareness, perception of signals arising from the inner body, and how it influences and is influenced by momentary affect. I am currently investigating this research question by utilizing various mood induction paradigms. I have a broader interest in social cognitive and affective neuroscience, as well psychophysiology of emotion.
