"My overall research goal is to understand how working memory functions. I am particularly interested in understanding forgetting mechanisms in working memory, such as removal. My current research focuses on how emotional memories are removed from working memory."

"Motor deficits, such as the ability to individuate finger movements, is a common impairment associated with stroke that often never reaches full recovery. Here, we use hyperalignment to create a neural template of ideal brain activity from healthy participants. Our goal is to use this template to guide recovery in a real-time fMRI neurofeedback experiment post-stroke."

"My interest is in exploring the role of our emotional state on our memory systems. Specifically, I am interested in the ways in which persistent mental illness can greatly affect our working memory capabilities and our ability to deal with the daily challenges of an information rich life."

"My main interest lies in the interaction between memory and attention. Specifically, I am interested in how attentional control shapes memory representations and how internal representations influence ongoing processes. My research combines cognitive neuroscience and computational techniques to explore these questions."
