I joined the faculty at Westminster in 2021. Before that I did my Ph.D. at Tufts University, then a postdoctoral fellowship at Boston College and Brandeis University.
I am a cognitive neuroscientist and my main research program focuses on questions about human memory, especially emotional memory (how and why do we remember emotional experiences and information differently than other experiences and information?). In much of my work, I use electroencephalography (EEG) to measure brain activity. I have also worked on research on topics related to EEG methods and statistics, social neuroscience, affective neuroscience, and cognitive aging.
At Westminster I teach in the psychology and neuroscience programs, including the research methods and statistics class for all psychology and neuroscience majors (PSY 201) and PSY 351 Cognition.
I also supervise undergraduate research in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. If you are interested in these topics, please come talk to me!
