I am interested broadly in memory and cognition, but particularly in memory for past events and experiences (i.e., episodic or autobiographical memory). I study factors that shape what we remember or believe about these past experiences, including processing fluency, visual imagery, and evidence. I often apply my research to issues in legal psychology, especially investigative interviewing and eyewitness memory. However, I am also interested in other applications of memory research, for example in the domains of education and health.
