Professor of Psychology
The main goal of our research is to advance our understanding of the neurocognitive basis of memory and cognitive control. To this end, we combine methods from experimental psychology with electrophysiological (EEG/ERP) and hemodynamic (fMRI) brain imaging techniques.
My research interests include:
• Interactions across memory systems
• Formation and retrieval of episodic memories
• Emotion regulation and emotional memory
• Mechanisms underlying incidental and intentional forgetting
• Relationship between eye-movements and memory
I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in cognition, neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience.
