Our lab is interested in memory and attention control processes that are involved in retrospective and prospective memory. Our focus is on processes that underlie the maintenance of goal-relevant information and metacognition and investigation of those processes to uncover age-related and individual differences in memory.


How do we focus our attention amidst distraction? How does our ability to pay attention affect how we encode information into memory? We are interested in the consequences of attentional lapses across various domains.


Why do we forget things? Who is most likely to forget? How do we improve learning? In our lab we study how we remember things from the past and how we remember to do things in the future. 


How do people develop memory and attention skills over time? Are there ways to reduce memory and attention errors with age? Our lab observes populations ranging from young adults to older adults (60+).
