My goal as a researcher is to expand the understanding of human behavior by examining the operating characteristics of memory and cognitive control. Our ability to process information relies entirely on knowledge and experience, and this shapes the way we interact with the world. From learning to swing a bat to storing covert, unconscious passwords, elucidating memory systems function has implications in all aspects of human factors.
