Research Themes

I'm broadly interested in how building blocks of human cognition develop across the lifespan, making use of both neuroimaging and multivariate developmental methodology. In my research on episodic memory (i.e. memory situated in time and place), I examine how its associative and strategic components interact and regulate memory changes across different life periods.
