      Research

      My research

      Pilleriin's main research interests include emotions and emotion regulation across the wake-sleep cycle and their relationship to health and well-being. More specifically, she studies (1) the nature and continuity of emotional experiences across different states of consciousness—from wakefulness to mind-wandering (or daydreaming) to sleep; (2) how emotions experienced during dreaming are associated with emotion regulation in wakefulness; and (3) the psychological and neurobiological correlates of peace of mind—an aspect of mental well-being—and its relation to emotion regulation.

      In her research she uses a multidisciplinary and multilevel framework that draws on the concepts, theories, and research from philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and (molecular) biology and integrates different research areas, such as emotion research, sleep and dream research, consciousness research, and well-being research.
