My research is part of the Project PERFECT(with prof. Lisa Bortolotti as the main investigator), which aims to establish whether cognitions that are inaccurate in some important respect can ever be good from a pragmatic or an epistemic point of view.

In particular I focus on possible psychological and epistemic benefits of depressive spectrum disorders and analyse the phenomena of depressive realism, defensive pessimism and depressive delusions.
