Research interests
Although I primarily have been working in the area of metacognitive judgments and decision making, my interests span a wide spectrum within the field of cognitive psychology. More specifically, my current interests include; the reconstructive nature of memory (e.g., source monitoring, illusory recollection), judgments of remembering and forgetting, the strategic regulation of accuracy (in test-taking situations, own-race bias, etc.), and how the experimental paradigms and memory questions we employ influence participants' performance (e.g., Remember-Know judgments vs.Recollection-Familiarity scales).
