Scientifically I am interested in understanding human intelligence and cognition. I tackle this central question from both psychological and biological perspectives (particularly using pharmacological methods). A significant part of this approach is to better understand the cognitive effects of a wide range of pharmacologically active substances ranging from illicit drugs to herbal and nutrient medicines. From a practical perspective I am interested in improving emotional competencies in organizations and in educational settings, particularly primary and secondary schools
