Research Interests

My primary interest is in memory, though memory is a very broad topic. In the past, I have worked with computer models of memory and more traditional experiments concerning how we store and retrieve basic concepts, and how we “know” something is related to something else. I am currently interested in exploring a broader view of memory, and especially how modern technological advances (television, the internet, video games, iPods, etc.) affect memory processes (how we think) and representations (what we store). Assistants in my lab have done everything from running participants and creating stimuli to reviewing the literature, designing their own experiments, and computer modeling.
