My research investigates the human ability to control and use memory to survive in a changing and uncertain environment. In the past, the focus has been mainly on developing a dual-trace model of memory that involves a dynamic short-term memory buffer. This has been the stepping stone for addressing larger questions about dynamic memory encoding and retrieval and their roles in other domains, such as memory-based decisions. Current and future directions in the research efforts involve the development of cognitive strategies, the trajectory of age-related cognitive change, and the failure of the cognitive system due to neurodegeneration.
Methodologies: experimental, correlational, and computational methods
Areas of research supervision
- Memory phenomena that involve the control over memory, the use of memory, and the loss of memory.
- Cognitive processes that require the use of stored information or the active acquisition of new information.
