- Decision making
- Metacognition and learning
In my research, I focus on factors that can influence memory and decision making in diverse contexts. Specifically, I have investigated how factors such as cognitive load, stereotypes, and metacognitive ability affect the way people are able to recall information and the types of decisions they later make. I am currently working in the Affective and Cognitive Influences of Decisions (ACID) Lab to explore how sleep restriction affects memory and decision making.
