Research Area: Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience
I graduated from Duke University with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Economics in 2015. During my time at Duke, I worked with Dr. David Rubin and Dr. Roberto Cabeaza on various memory studies such as examining neural correlates of involuntary memory in patients with PTSD. Currently, I am a second year graduate student at Vanderbilt University, and my journey for memory research continues with Dr. Lisa Fazio and Dr. Sean Polyn. My research interest lies in examining ways to improve encoding of new information. In particular, I'm interested in identifying the cognitive process underlying retrieval practice through behvaioral experiments and computational modeling.
