I graduated from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina in the spring of 2015, where I studied prospective memory (memory for performing intended actions in the future; e.g., remembering to take your medication with breakfast) with Dr. Gil Einstein. 

Although I have broad interests in learning and memory, at Washington University I have primarily focused on studying prospective memory, and to a lesser degree the impact of students’ metacognition on subsequent study and test behaviors. Mark and I are particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms involved in successful prospective memory and how these basic underpinnings translate into our ability to perform delayed intentions in the real world.
