Position: Assistant Professor
Campus Affiliation: Brooklyn College
Degrees/Diplomas: Ph. D. Harvard University
Training Area: Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience|Cognition, Language, and Development
Research Interests: Cognitive neuroscience of memory and self; Metamemory
I joined Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York in January 2011. After receiving my Ph.D. from Harvard University, I went on to do a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of California, Davis. I have broad interests in the cognitive and neural bases of human memory, metamemory, and self-related processing. My research thus far has focused on three major areas: associative memory, metamemory (knowledge of one's memory) and how these change in normal aging. The methods used in my laboratory to answer questions on these topics include functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and eye tracking techniques.
