Research Interests - I’m interested in visual and spatial working memory, how people remember and process visual and spatial information across the short term. Specifically, I’m interested in the processes involved in encoding, maintaining, and retrieving visual information as well as how those processes interact with visual selective attention, controlled attention, and long-term memory. I’m also interested in applying the basic principles of visual working memory to real world situations such as training and driving.
