Ella completed a research PhD in the Takarangi Lab in 2019. She currently works as a Research Fellow in the Functions of Emotions in Everyday Life lab at the University of Melbourne. Her research centres around understanding the interactions between cognition and emotion. Specifically, Ella aims to understand how emotions influence the way people remember the past and think about the future, and how past and future situations influence the way people feel in the present. Ella’s research combines both experimental and experience sampling methods, where people complete multiple surveys per day in the course of their daily lives. Ella continues to work with the Takarangi Lab as an adjunct PhD supervisor and mentor, and through several ongoing collaborations including on the psychological risks facing content moderators.
