I conduct use-inspired, basic research on human memory. This has included work on the impact of automation on cognitive performance, situation awareness, and prospective memory (especially with air traffic controllers). My current focus is eyewitness identification, including the transformative role of decision confidence. My approach includes the application of formal computational models.
