Teaching Interests


At the undergraduate level, I have experience teaching cognitive psychology and a writing intensive course for cognitive psychology (Fall 2008, Spring 2009), and could teach advanced cognitive psychology, seminars in cognitive psychology, learning and memory, introductory psychology, introductory statistics, and research methods. At the graduate level, I am interested in teaching cognitive psychology, seminars in cognitive psychology, including seminars in learning and memory and applying cognitive principles to education.


Research Program


My research interests involve promoting student learning, including investigation of when retrieval practice is beneficial for memory, evaluating theoretical accounts for why retrieval practice is beneficial for memory, how spacing in combination with retrieval practice maximizes performance, how students self-regulate learning, how students’ metacognition is related to their self-regulated learning, and how individual differences (e.g., age, memory expertise) may influence the efficacy of learning schedules
