Brief Description of Research Interests
My research is in the general area of human memory. I am especially interested in how we keep information in working/short term memory even when there are distractions. I am also interested in how working memory interacts with other cognitive processes like attention and language processing.

My main goal is to get students excited about the science of psychology. Students may come into the major with a narrow view of the field, and I hope to show the amazing breadth of possibilities in studying psychology.
