Areas of research interest

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
