About

In my research I examine how to improve the accuracy of both memory performance and the judgments people make about their cognitive functions. My research takes basic memory processes as a starting point, but extends to questions that have direct applied relevance: How can we help students choose optimal study strategies? Why are test scores sometimes so surprising to students? And how can we be sure that what we are remembering actually happened?
