Research Interests

I study human memory, cognition, and social influence, with a particular interest in applications of these topics to issues in legal and educational psychology. My research focuses on themes such as:

  • people's ability to remember past events and experiences, and information they have learned
  • factors that can shape or distort what we remember/believe
  • how people engage with, and respond to, feedback about their performance and memories
  • how we can help people to remember more effectively
