Research Interests

  • Working Memory

  • Serial Order

  • Individual Differences 

Ph.D. Vanderbilt University, 2019, Cognitive Psychology

B.S. Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014, Psychology

My research broadly investigates working memory, using multiple perspectives (differential and experimental) and multiple computational approaches (the general linear model, cognitive models, structural equation models, and meta-analysis). Working memory is a complex cognitive system that allows people to store, manipulate, and eventually act on information that is currently relevant to them. In my research, I seek understanding of the nature of working memory, its operations (such as keeping thoughts and actions in order), and its relationship with other higher-order cognition (such attention and novel reasoning ability).
