My research focuses on the mechanisms that underlie human memory. Intuitively, it may seem that remembering and forgetting reflect two ends of a single continuum — that to remember is to avoid forgetting. In many instances, however, forgetting plays an essential and adaptive role in our ability to remember. A major focus of my research has been to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms that underlie the forgetting of unwanted and irrelevant information in memory. I am also keenly interested in the intersection between memory and other cognitive processes (e.g., learning, motivation, goal-setting and embodied cognition).
