I am a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University working with Dr. Lila Davachi. 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 graduated from the University of Toronto working under the supervision of Dr. Lynn Hasher and Dr. 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.
