Memory & Metacognition Lab

Research Areas:

What are the factors that can increase the likelihood someone will remember information? What impact does emotion, interest, and other forms of motivation have on our learning? 

How well are we able to predict our own memory, and what are factors that that increase metacognitive judgment accuracy?


Current/Future Projects:

How do social comparisons impact curiosity to learn, as well as actual memory performance?

How does interest impact category learning?
