Research

I am a cognitive psychologist, and I am particularly interested in research on memory. I did my Ph.D. with Steve Lindsay at the University of Victoria and am currently living in San Antonio, Texas. I’ve worked as an adjunct professor at Our Lady of the Lake University, St. Mary’s University, and Trinity University. I am currently a Lecturer at Texas A&M University – San Antonio.

I generally work on research topics in applied memory, more specifically eyewitness memory. Many projects are on the go, one of which focuses on the effects of eyewitness testimony on confidence of investigators, specifically the abilities of police officers to discriminate between accurate and inaccurate witnesses. Another is an attempt to predict eyewitness’ individual differences in their proclivity to choose someone from a lineup (published in CR:PI). See my Open Science Framework profile for descriptions of all projects, relevant poster presentations, and manuscript preprints.

I believe that applied cognitive research is an important factor in the contemporary movement to better the field of psychological science. Check out the paper we wrote as the inaugural SARMAC Student Caucus Exec Board on the history of applied cognitive psychology.
