I study human memory. My experiments reveal how memories can be changed by things that we are told. Facts, ideas, suggestions and other forms of post-event information can modify our memories. The legal field, so reliant on memories, has been a significant application of the memory research. My interest in psychology and law, more generally, has grown from this application.

Primary Interests:

  • Applied Social Psychology
  • Interpersonal Processes
  • Judgment and Decision Making
