My research draws on traditions from experimental psychology, differential psychology, computational modeling, and neuroscience to investigate the role of cognitive control in planning and coordination of goal-directed behaviors (i.e., prospective memory), encoding and retrieval of information in long-term memory (i.e., episodic memory), and monitoring and regulation of one’s own cognition (i.e., metamemory). My dissertation examined the role of multiple cognitive control processes (e.g., working memory, proactive control) underlying continuous and transient monitoring in event-based prospective memory. Along these lines, I am currently investigating age-related differences in cognitive control and processes that facilitate goal-directed behavior at Washington University in St. Louis as a Postdoctoral Scholar on the National Institute of Aging Training Grant.
