My research program, funded by NSERC, has focused on issues related to recognition memory. In particular, I have been interested in distinguishing between decision-based and memory-based influences on recognition performance. Recent work includes studies of different aspects of recognition memory such as the effects of context, the Revelation Effect, the Mirror Effect, and face recognition. I am also interested in the distinction between item and associative information, and the separate contributions of familiarity and recollection to memory performance.
The courses I typically teach include Introduction to Cognitive Psychology, and laboratory and seminar courses in Cognitive Psychology.
