My interests are in the transcriptional mechanisms of long term memory, especially the decay of long-term memory. As a model system, I use Aplysia californica. Techniques in my lab include behavioral analysis, electrophysiology, in situ hybridization, real-time PCR, and some microarray analysis, and computational modeling. I also have a keen interest in inferential statistics, research methods, and the reproducibility crisis ongoing in the the behavioral and neural sciences. To that end I have conducted a number of close replications of prominent social psychology findings, and I collaborated with Geoff Cumming on an undergraduate statistics textbook focused on using estimation approaches rather than null-hypothesis significance testing.
