I am a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University and Harvard University working with Drs. Lila Davachi and Daniel Schacter. The aim of my research is to elucidate the cognitive control mechanisms that impact episodic memory, specifically, our ability to remember the order of everyday life events.

I will be starting my own lab as an Assistant Professor at the University of Victoria in July 2022.

I graduated from the University of Toronto working under the supervision of Drs. Lynn Hasher and Cheryl Grady. As a graduate student, my work largely focused on the relationship between cognitive control and behaviour across the lifespan, and particularly, how the level of cognitive control engagement mediates performance across a variety of tasks.
