My research focuses on understanding how people make decisions about their memories. Remembering our past is a complex process and my research program is aimed at elucidating: 1.) how individuals introspect on their memory and how these thoughts guide decision-making, 2.) the environmental and contextual factors that influence memory decisions and the processes that support the ability to integrate this information, and 3.) how these abilities develop throughout the lifespan, particularly during childhood.
