Department of Psychology Cognition and Memory Lab


Currently, my research interests cover several areas.  My main research focus is on prospective memory, or remembering to perform intentions, and so several ongoing projects are on this topic.  These projects include studies that look at motivation (e.g., goals) and studies that look at cognitive processing before and after fulfilling an intention.  Past studies have included both younger and older adults. I plan to also continue research on improving memory—both for prospective memory tasks and for remembering information. Finally, I am collaborating with Dr. Walt Scott in examining cognitive variables and social cognitive variables (e.g., schemas) in personality functioning.
