Research expertise
Research interests
My main research interest is in howthe role of confidence in memory judgments.  In particular, my main interests are around the misinformation effect (and memory conformity) as well as how confidence-accuracy plays a role.  In addition, I have an interest in emotion recognition and uncertainty orientation in decision-processes.
