Research Interests

Cognitive neuroscience of human memory. Our research focuses on long-term memory, with the goal of developing a deeper understanding of its cognitive and neural bases, how it relates to other aspects of cognition (e.g., perception, decision making, motor control), how it changes across the lifespan, and how it can be enhanced to promote graceful aging. We use fMRI, ERPs, motion tracking, virtual reality, and cognitive behavioral experiments to answer relevant questions in healthy and clinical populations.
