My research examines a variety of topics within the domain of cognitive psychology using both theoretical and applied techniques with humans. The research areas that my work involves are memory (both long-term and working memory), decision-making/reasoning, and text comprehension. Generally, within all of these areas I am particularly interest in how these processes function as well as factors that can influence (enhance or hinder) them. From working in these areas, I have also developed research interests that involve the teaching of psychology and the application of cognitive findings to learning and memory in the classroom.
