Curriculum Vitae        Research       Teaching        Personal 

I received my Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Virginia in May 2008 and I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Butler University in Indianapolis.

My research program focuses on memory errors and the factors that contribute to them. I am especially interested in how factors such as mood can impact our ability to accurately monitor the contextual details of our memories and in what reductions in memory errors can tell us about how the memory system works.

My teaching interests include courses on memory and amnesia, cognitive psychology, advanced labs in cognitive psychology, research methods and data analysis, introductory psychology, seminars on memory in media, and mentoring undergraduate researchers.
