My research focuses on the relationship between cognitive control and memory formation. As a graduate student, working under the supervision of Drs. Lynn Hasher and Cheryl Grady at the University of Toronto, my work focused on how cognitive control changes with old age positively and negatively impact performance on different memory tasks. Currently, I am interested in investigating the link between cognitive control and episodic memory. Specifically, my work investigates how we remember the order of everyday life events, and how brain regions underlying cognitive control and memory interact to support temporal sequence learning.
