Overview of My Research
The main goal of my research is to understand how people put information into memory. I primarily study the different types of strategies people use to ease this process. I use a combination of approaches and technologies in my studies. Learn more about my research and areas of study below.
Unlocking Research Mysteries
Research involves constant investigating and redesigning of the scientific questions posed. The strength of my research lies in the breadth and depth of the experimental and statistical approaches I utilize in understanding the mechanisms that drive the systems I am studying.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME
In undergraduate, I attended a small, private Catholic college, Christian Brothers University. While there, I was involved in projects looking at memory for life events. I got involved in the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, where I conducted in electroencephalography (EEG) research. I specifically looked at event-related potentials (ERPs), such as the Contingent Negative Variation. I worked on bettering paradigms involved in the research field. During my time there, I was awarded the Outstanding School of Arts Graduate Student award and Behavioral Sciences Faculty Award.
At Kansas State University, I am involved in Dr. Heather Bailey's Memory and Aging Laboratory, where I primarily study strategies to encode information into working memory. I mentor a team of undergraduates. I am also the graduate research assistant for the NIH-funded EEG Core. I work alongside Dr. Alexandra Zakrzewski and Dr. Matt Wisniewski looking at neural signatures in working memory strategies, metacognitive ability, and auditory learning.
