I study aspects of human memory, including false memories (remembering events that did not actually happen), forgetting, memory enhancement, and metamemory (knowledge about our own memory). In addition to studying these aspects separately, I am particularly interested in studying the ways in which they interact, such as how forgetting affects both accurate and false memories. My research also extends to several real-world situations, such as education and eyewitness memory. I use a combination of techniques to study these aspects of memory: In addition to conducting experiments with human participants, I also build and test computer models of memory.
