Research Focus


I am interested in applying principles of memory towards better practices of education and memory rehabilitation. Throughout my MA and PhD training, I used scalp-recorded event-related potentials to investigate how information is processed and how new memories are formed. During my postdoctoral training, I will extend my graduate work by investigating neurocognitive processes that lead to improved memory. My long-term research goals include developing a comprehensive research program on specific cognitive strategies that would serve most effectively in memory-based interventions. My ultimate goal is to have a meaningful role in effectively translating what we know about memory into practical applications that help people in a variety of settings.
