Research interests
My research is primarily focused on applied and theoretical aspects of metacognition. Theoretically oriented projects include investigations of: monitoring and control processes in recognition memory and mechanisms underlying positive versus negative recognition decisions. My applied work includes projects examining: processes and factors underlying a witness's decision to make an identification from a line-up; regulation of grain size and reporting of eyewitness testimony; and predictors (e.g., confidence and response latency) of identification accuracy.
