My research specialty is human learning and memory. In practice, this means that I carry out experiments in which subjects see a list of words and then receive a test on their memory for the words. Research such as this is done to determine what makes some events more memorable than others. Specific topics that I have studied here include the effects of repetition on memory and the relationship between short-term and long-term measures of memory.
