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).
