RESEARCH INTEREST
My research focus includes the areas of short-term memory and working memory, and also the interaction of attention with memory performance.

My interest in short-term memory stems from the close relationship between the items that a person is attending to and the ability to retain these items over short periods of time. To understand the interaction between memory and attention, it is helpful to be able to manipulate carefully what a person is attending to, or purposefully ignoring. In this way, the auditory modality is very useful for study. The direction of one's attention in the visual modality can be easily modified by gaze, or even closing one's eyes. This is not the case in the auditory modality. For this reason, much of my research includes auditory stimuli, which of course are ever-present in the natural environment. Additionally, I study the development of memory in children. I believe that studying children can be a valuable tool for understanding the origins of adult cognition.

RESEARCH INTEREST
I. Source Memory and Decision Processes

Source monitoring refers to the processes by which people remember the original source of a memory (e.g., which of 2 friends said something to you in the past; whether you remember a news story from reading a newspaper or watching the television). The source of a memory is inferred by both the type and amount of memorial details recovered from memory. Memories may include details concerning sensory information, spatiotemporal context information, semantic information, affective information, and internal records of elaboration, imagination, and organization.

Most of my work concerning source memory is aimed toward an understanding of the various memorial qualities people retrieve in making inferences about the source of a memory. I am also interested in the extent to which source memory and these decision processes are influenced by the test cuing environment.

II. Recognition Memory and False Memory

Recognition memory involves the ability to recognize a stimulus as having occurred in your personal past. For example, passing someone in the hallway may spark you to recall that you had met the person a week or so prior at a party. How does the memory system process that information? The nature of the test cue and environment, and decision-making processes are vital to how recognition decisions are made. These factors are important to study in my research program.

In a related vein, when we falsely claim that a stimulus was experienced, we have produced a false memory. Thus, another aspect of my research in recognition memory is how the memory system produces errors.

III. Propspective Memory

Prospective memory is comprised of two components: (1) a retrospective component that stores one's commitments, activities, plans, etc., and (2) a prospective component that reviews the contents of the retrospective component in order to reprioritize, re-plan, and schedule task completion. Clearly, then, prospective remembering involves more than just memory, including the availability of attentionalresources when an intention should be fulfilled. My work in PM addresses how attentional resources are allocated to remembering intentions as compared to performing regular ongoing daily activities.

RESEARCH INTEREST
The general goal of my research program is to understand how memory and cognitive processes are deployed in complex real-world events. The source-monitoring framework motivates the vast majority of my research. Source memory concerns the origin of information and can be dissociated from memory for the information itself. For instance, someone can remember the "fact" that shark cartilage can be used to cure cancer, yet not remember whether they read that information in the National Enquirer or in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

One arena where the accuracy of source memory is particularly important is the justice system. Often witnesses to a crime are exposed to multiple sources of information (e.g., law enforcement personnel, other witnesses, the media) following a crime. One concern is whether witnesses are able to separate information they actually perceived at the time of the witnessed event from information acquired afterwards. My work concerns the factors that make it more or less likely that people will incorporate post-event information into their accounts of a witnessed event (eyewitness suggestibility).

My research is motivated by the belief that considering the complexity of real-world cognition can inform our understanding of basic mechanisms while providing needed applications. In addition to the areas noted above, I’ve also done research on:

1) Eyewitness identification and beliefs about eyewitness memory

2) Experience-based (implicit) learning

3) Education, Learning and Teacher Expertise

4) Impact of retrieval on subsequent memory performance

My research has been conducted in both academic and industrial settings.

RESEARCH INTEREST
My research is done within the field of psycholinguistics. I am specifically interested in first and second language acquisition, bilingualism, and language comprehension.

Many of my research projects deal with language learning in adulthood. If you have studied a foreign language in high school or college, you probably have encountered some frustration. Unlike your native language, acquired when you were a child, learning a second language in adulthood seems effortful and difficult. Your ultimate level of mastery in the second language is also likely to be much less than that of native speakers. Some researchers speculate this is because there is a biologically determined critical period for language acquisition—that is, that language must be acquired early in life for mastery to be nativelike.

I am interested in alternative explanations of age of acquisition effects on language mastery based on cognitive processes. In particular, I am interested in exploring how differences in phonological ability, working memory capacity and processing speed influence grammatical mastery. My lab has examined this relationship in adult second language speakers, native speakers under processing stress, and in native speaking children.

There are numerous research opportunities in my lab for students who are interested in language acquisition, language comprehension or bilingualism (or who are bilingual themselves!)

RESEARCH INTEREST
My lab focuses on investigating human perception and memory, using converging techniques to study multiple, interrelated phenomena. Across studies, we collect data at multiple levels of analysis, emphasizing classic techniques, while also incorporating newer dynamic measures, including mouse-tracking,oculomotor and psychophysiological measures, and (in collaboration with researchers at Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix) direct neural recordings.

Some of the research currently going on in the lab includes:

• The role of encoding strength in memory retrieval, and the psychophysiological markers of recognition memory.

• The role of eye movements in learning and retrieval from implicit and explicit memory.

• Own- and other-race face perception/recognition, and the mediating cognitive processes.

• How do individuals match faces to photograph IDs under various levels of internal and external pressure?

• How do eye movements reveal memory in the absence of conscious awareness?

• How do you know that you don’t know something?

• What are the retrieval dynamics of recognizing familiar words, faces, and sentences?
